    Thanks for the replies. So far it is still up on the design wall.
    Been to busy to even think of what to do with it next.

    After finally taking the quilt top off the design wall. I put it on the bed. It didn't fit so I have decided to make two quilts with it. Now my search begins for some of that Vintage Reproduction Canning Days fabric for the backing and the sash and binding. I think that would suit this quilt just fine.
