    I acquired this piece and thought I would bind it and use as a table runner. There is no story behind it and I couldn't just ignore it since someone has put this much work into it. I don't do hand quilting, however, after lurking on this board and reading your topics, I want to muster up courage and give it a try. No extra fabric came with this so I will need to buy something to use as a binding. What do you recommend? (I apologize for the poor photography.) The piece is 82 inches long. Each block varies but is close to 16".

    I would try to match the yellow/gold background color. If you could find that fabric, great, but I doubt it is still available. Looks nice, and lots of work there already!

    I agree, if you can match the yellow/gold that would really finish the piece.

    It's pretty. I'd go with gold for binding.
