Free Quilt

Here's my "Almost Free" quilt. We started a little group with the goal of making quilts from our stash only. I have 4 started & this one completed. I did have to pay for the quilting of course but the only other expense was 1.99 for thread to match my binding since I wanted to machine attach it with a decorative stitch. It's a good feeling to use up some fabric that's for sure!

While trimming a quilt for binding today it occurred to me that I should be choosier about my backings. I tend to use up stash fabrics that no longer carry that much appeal for me to use in quilt tops. But these are the fabrics that end up in my scrap quilts! How do you normally do your backings?
