    That is a beautiful quilt. I like the quilting so much better on the older quilts that were done by hand or by machine and not quilted so tight, love the fluffy ones.

    There is no separate binding -- the backing is just wrapped around to the front and sewed down.

    There are some very interesting materials in there. I think just about anyone would be most happy to own this quilt.
