I have made many bed sized quilts over the years but am primarily an art quilter now and working smaller. Working on large quilts is a challenge on me physically.
The joins are virtually invisible in the areas with the same backing fabric and it allowed me to more comfortably handle the work.You can see the join above because I backed the borders with different fabric so I could use my stash.

I made each block on the given month.

and notice the different snow fabrics. I had fun with my stash of snowy blues! Many of the 2.5" squares came from scrap bins and the others from yardage.
I love that snowflake on batik fabric...

When they went on the quilt, they already had binding on them with an un-sewn tail left to join with the adjoining border.
It was so large and heavy with flannel backing that I saved myself by binding each border, as I went. The joins are invisible!
I'll use this method again.
