Acreage Quilt Progress

I'm working on prepping my binding as my Acreage Quilt (that's what I'm going to call it) is out getting quilted by my favorite quilt shop-The Quilt Locker- in Pierre. 

I folded my quilt top and backing and sent her off and cannot wait to get her back to bind. I will say I have gotten more sleep this past week than the previous few because I had a very aggressive schedule to get the top pieced together. 
Since I would still call myself an amateur quilter, I am still perfecting my binding skills. My concern with the binding for my acreage quilt is that with the scraps I have left I am only able to do a 2"binding instead of my usual 2 1/2" pieces. It'll come together as I'll just play around with my seam allowance as I sew my binding around the perimeter.
