Need some help picking a backing
5 Attachment(s)
So, over the last Virtual Quilting weekend, I put together a top with some blocks made of roll strips. As I showed my progress while messaging to my sister, she wowed about it in a way that made me realize it has to be hers. She is usually my 'go to' for color questions when I hit a wall. But, since it's going to be her quilt, I don't want to spoil the surprise when she receives it. I *know* it has to be a Kaffe Fassett print - she loves them so much. Right now I'm bouncing around with the 4 possible fabrics: Millefiori -in Orange or Brown, Paperweight in Brown, or Roman Glass in Gold. Pix below.

So far I think his smaller prints will be less "over the top" (oh, pun unintended, lol!) but I'm open to convincing if the colors are right! Color's so subjective, but could you throw me an opinion, please?

Pretty top! I like the third from your top with the darker background. Use which ever backing you like with your top and binding.

My first glance choice is the one with the dark background. Seems like the dark ties it to the front, to me. Of course, you can't go wrong with any of your choices. Very pretty top! Lucky sister!

I also like the third choice. (I was picturing that type of color even before I scrolled down enough to see your pictures!)

I also like the third!

I like the middle picture with the bigger motifs, but any of these would be great.

I like the first one shown, the bright gold one. A close second is #2.

Pretty quilt! I like the 4th one best... The gold color. Next would be the 3rd one... The dark brown.

Your top has a lot of earth tones in it and the pattern is very linear. I’m recommending the orange one both for color and pattern. I think the large circles are a nice contrast to all the straight lines on the front.

Go go bold, Orange Millefori (picture 1) for the win!

It will also make the top look "cooler" in comparison, while the colors still shine through :)
