I decided to do double batting to give it more of a comforter feel. It really shows off the stitching. I used Glide thread in the silver color. I can't believe how well it turned out. Originally I was going to do a custom design but I like the way edge to edge designs look on the back better. I used a flat sheet for the backing that has a beautiful sheen to it. It wasn't originally planned this way but it really is a reversible quilt. For the binding I used two different fabrics from the collection, alternating. This was a very difficult quilt to bind because it was huge and heavy, but I got it done!
