Granny Squares and Foxgloves: how to bind?

One might consider using this lovely fabric as backing and adding another as binding ... but the piece I have is too small for my 47 x 47 inch / 122 x 122 com granny square. We'll see when I work up the courage to cut into this gorgeous fabric.

In the meantime, I have a charity quilt to finish.

That fabric is gorgeous. Can you combine it with a solid to make it big enough for the back and the binding?

Maybe you can use an accent fabric around the piece of material you have to make it the right size. That way you don't have to cut it up.

I've checked the shop site and they suggest coordinating fabrics so I might do that. On the other hand, I don't want the back to distract from the front nor do I want to "waste" those lovely Foxgloves on mere backing that's set to be ignored. You see my dilemma?
