It is really so different from the front, I'm not sure I should use it for the backing (or at all). I don't know how I would quilt this if I used this different backing. Any opinions?
    You could call it "Side Trip". lol. Whatever you call it, it is beautiful.

    If you put it together as is it would be a reversable quilt. I would like that. If I wanted a change there you go two for the price of one they say lol beautiful.

    The potential back is well laid out and great colors, pretty enough to be a front, so I have to say only use it as the back for Trip if you'll reverse it often! I plan to make a reversible quilt for myself as it would take up less space when stored, be easy to change looks, and would give me double value on the pricy wool batting I will use.

    I agree. I think it would make another great quilt. Perhaps a plain muslin backing would work.
    One step at a time, always forward.

    I agree with the others. But you now have two quilt tops here. They are both very nice, but.......in IMHO they don't really go together. BrendaK
