    It looks like Diagonal Checkerboard to me!

    Black Binding because that quilt is going to last FOREVER.

    I love it and the bright colors.

    I wouldn't change a thing. I am with the others on the existing binding.

    This is the same block used in Amer. Patchwork & Quilting magazine (Oct 2010) called Granny Squares. They set it diagonally with brown blocked sashing to give it the look of a crocheted afghan. Very pretty.

    It's my first poly quilt, didn't realize others did this too. Could it be a 'Tennessee' thing ?

    I would use black as it would really set off the blocks great.

    What did you back it with??? I have a red, white and blue top in my cedar chest that my Mother did with double knit. I was going to tie it but may machine quilt.

    I like the blue green. It's your quilt and your dream.

    I also have one that has double knit on the back, I cannot keep it on the bed though (it just slides off).

    I think black would frame it beautifully.

    I don't know about TN, but my grandmother, aunts, and great-grandmother all made at least a few polyester quilts. Mom still has one that her grandmother made, and it's in great shape. I think anyone who sewed in the 60's and 70's had a bunch of polyester scraps and making quilts would be the natural way to use them up. I still remember some of the suits "the girls" made and can id the scraps on the quilts Mom & Dad have.

    Yes, we still have MILs polyester scrap quilts made during the early 70s. They last forever! As for the binding (which I assume you have removed the old one), I would use a double folded black one. Deep Christmas red might work but a black binding would set the blocks off nicely.
