I'm in the process of making a 'scrappy' quilt. I have enough backing
fabric to run the seam horizontally across the middle but not enough
to use it vertically with it seamed on each side. Every book I've
read says never do a horizontal seam on the back. Is this just for
visual appeal or is there another reason like shrinkage or something?
If it's just for looks, I can live with a horizontal seam...if it's
for another reason, I'll have to find a Plan B backing fabric. Thank
