    Yes it is real bags, and I had a bunch that we had indeed emptied ourselves over a span of a number of years. However, once I determined what pattern I wanted to use I bought some in bulk off ebay to supplement my collection.

    I love all the responses, but what color of backing do you think I should use?

    That is gorgeous. I love it. I would use a cotton backing, but as others have said, if you want extra warmth, use the flannel. Whatever you choose, I,m sure it will be awesome>
    so many quilts to make, so little time.

    fabric.com has a wide variety of wide backing fabrics- regular cottons and flannels- and free shipping at the $35 point. I've been buying almost all of my backings from them for over 10 years...great choices- good prices- good customer service.

    I like this purple for the back. I like to be able to match top and bottom threads and still be able to hide as many of my flubs as possible!

    I would suggest a purple and white floral that has green leaves in it and back it with that. Love, love, love this quilt.

    Crown Royal gold for the back! Maybe with bits of purple and white/cream.

    This is one of the better CR bag quilts I've ever seen; way to go!

    I'd go with a gold backing. (OK, creamy-beige if youcan't get gold.)
