I had Chelsea (www.chelseaquilts.com) do the quilting for me, knowing that I could never manage to work this beast through my normal household machine, and I'm so glad I did. She did a wonderful job.
I used Carolyn Friedlander's Widescreen Crosshatch fabric for backing, which ended up being just wide enough to use without having to piece any other fabric into the backing to bring it up to size. Phew! I was relieved to not have to deal with that for such a big quilt. The binding fabric is Moda Bella Solids in Scarlet.
