Default Clouds or Stripes for Backing?

I'm going to use one of these two fabrics from my stash on the back of this baby quilt with Scottie dogs. Which do you think looks better?... the clouds on the left or the stripes on the right?

I like the stripes. They coordinate well with the top.

I also like the stripes - it would also make a great binding for that top.

Stripe backing for me and hopefully you have enough to cut bias binding out of it too.

The stripes are a perfect backing for the Scotties.

I vote stripes as well; from the picture the stripes seems to have similar colors and blend well with the Scotty Dogs. You won’t go wrong with either one though for a backing.
