i used binding that i've had for awhile. i did have to buy backing. i don't usually have 8 yards of fabric laying around. i wish i had huge chunks of fabric for projects like this but oh well.
lastly, thank you everyone for your comments on this quilt. i didn't use sashing and i LOVE it! i'm giving it to my sister-in-law on my hubbys side. the only one i haven't made one for yet. shame on me. i hope she like it. :) i really appreciate all your comments. thanks again for stopping by. oh one last thing I CAN SEE A LOT OF OUR GRASS!!!!! how about you? :)
