Ok after valuable input from fellow color aficionados i decided on the following:
1. i am not going to put a border on my quilt because the colors are off and nothing will match
2. i am going to use a sheet for the backing
3. i will add the batting that i got for 50% off at Jo Ann's
4. i will use a variety of fabric for the binding
5. i will tie the quilt together because i refuse to spend any more $ on this project... sigh....
i am feeling utterly dejected.........
