    I finally got the top done. It was a pain to assemble. I won't need any light in the bedroom, it'll brighten it up.
    How should I bind it and what to use for backing? This is a Karen combs pattern, 80 x 80. I just had to make it, now that I did, I don't know what to do with it. As for backing, I have a lot of fabric left over and would like to make a scrappy back, maybe. How would I do that? I am not in the mood for small pieces right now. Any suggestions?

    WOW - you did a wonderful job! Maybe is you used big squares of each color for the back?

    Gorgeous!!!!

    I'm not an expert, but I have an idea. Why not do a large patchwork for the back. Make the squares the same size as those blocks would be (all of the oranges added together for example) and then do the binding in a color of your choice that comes from the top. What color is the bedroom??? If it's green, use a green, etc.

    You said you don't know what to do with the quilt! I have an idea - send it to me! It's beautiful. As for the back, I would do as someone else suggested - take your leftover fabric and cut large squares.
