    Ok I am finally finishing off my circus star quilt. I am going to do the binding in the red (same as stars) my choices for backing are the stripes I used for the sashing, or an animal print in the same colors.

    I would like to hear your opinions as to which ya'll like better.

    Thanks

    I think that either would be great, but I can understand your dilemma.

    I'd use the stripes; it would carry the look through, the animals look like a different print.
