German term or phrase: Rückseitenstoff
Ich habe diese Anleitung für einen Quilt zu übersetzen, und ich hänge am Rückseitenstoff.

"Den Rückseitenstoff teilen Sie und nähen beide Teile an den Webkanten wieder zusammen"

Kennt vielleicht jemand ein ordentliches Glossar zum Thema (in Deutsch und Englisch???)??
