Ironwork*- a finished top!

A couple of days ago I worked on finishing up a quilt top that was part of a QAL with Sandi of Piecemeal Quilts.
She did the design and had many alternative options for colour layouts, all done with her EQ7.
This was a fun project for me as I had never done any kind of asterisk, and Sandi's method was great.
I used all Kona solids for my quilt...

Kona ash and medium grey;
Kona charcoal for the grid work;
Kona school bus for the orange;
Kona green tea is the lighter green, and I don't know what the dark green is!!
This is a large quilt, measuring somewhere around 84" square.
Now I need to figure out a backing for it.
My plan is to look around for a large sheet !
