I did not have enough of the "Tossed Trees" fabric that I bought at JoAnn's for the back of the quilt, so I improvised and added some white and I love it.
I found this great stripe material for the binding from Sandi Henderson Farmer's Market line, which I LOVE. It was the first time I did this kind of binding, I always do continuous bias binding, but that wouldn't work with a stripe.
Here is the ric rack sewed on a strip before I made the top of the quilt. I love the little bits of ric rack, I am totally going to use it again in a quilt.
When I am done with a quilt, I fold it up and just look at it. I know it is weird, but that is what I do.
It measures 65x85. Long enough for my husband, who is 6'4", to lay under.
