The back is a chrome yellow and it was brought over to the front to form the binding. I'm not sure about the bat- it is fairly heavy but not heavy enough to be wool but not cotton either. It lays nice and flat and is beautifully pieced. It is hand quilted with a line of stitching through each log. This is an excellent early quilt in wonderful condition.
There may be a loose piece or two but nothing not easily mended, and there are no stains or spots.
