For both the backing and binding, I used fabric from good old Spotlight who have had some good sales recently. The backing is actually Christmas fabric, but I quite liked the little wrapped parcels and I don't think it shrieks Christmas.
As usual I wasn't sure what to do with quilting - I started off doing a double echo of the seam lines, then because the squares are quite big (5.5" finished) I decided to cross-hatch as well to give it more texture. I am warming to cross-hatching - have you seen this gorgeous quilt made by Adrianne? Even though I still don't love the quilting part of quilt making, I moan about it less in my head and I even manage to feel quite pleased sometimes when little quilty patterns emerge (totally unplanned of course!).
