    Instead of wraping backing to front for binding why couldn't you just cut binding from different material and bind it that way?

    That's what I was going say, but use a wider binding? I'm newish to quilting and there may be some commandment that says binding should be around 2 1/2", but would a wider border/binding work?
    Lang may yer lum reek.

    Glad you got it fixed - and I'm sure you've learned a LOT with this experience!

    I surely did learn a lot. Tearing should only be done when NOT attached to a quilt. Not all fabric has the pattern on it straight and things look better after you let yourself calm down.

    I am attaching a photo of the backing here. I posted the entire quilt with the story behind it (see link)
