I also go for the stripes. Doggies are very cute.

I would have gone with clouds as it is for a baby but I think stripes wins it!

I'm voting for the stripes - the colors match your Scotties perfectly. The cloud fabric would be great as a Scottie background fabric - they'd look like they're flying ;o)

Looks as if your answer is "Stripes". Go for it and have fun, it's going to be a super cute quilt!

The stripes... no question about it. The little Scotties are so cute!

I prefer the stripes. It adds to the "fun" of the quilt. Good job!

I vote for the stripes as the stripes have some of the colors of your Scotties.

This sounds great to me. I hate using stripes for backing - I always get them sort of wonky.
