I decided to make three inch sashing and six inch borders. It is turning out well.

I am trying to decide how to back the quilt. I think I will use a few special clothing items from the kiddos in keeping with the scrap idea. I will piece them together to form a strip across the back. The big question is what fabric to use for the main back sections. I am drawn a bit to a gingham, but am thinking perhaps a solid color would be better. Any ideas?
