    Great 'trip around your sewing room'!!!! I love it!!! You're right.....maybe a different back. What you have already made makes a perfect front. Now you have 2

    Me, too. Love your Trip Around the World but I don't think the back goes with it.

    Love the top and the name, but really don't care for the backing. Use it for a charity quilt. I think a moda or a Batik might look really nice for the back.

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.

    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

    It looks beautiful. Trip Around Town made me laugh!! I love it.
    When it seems like the world is falling to pieces remember that the pieces are falling into place. We are nearing closer to the End Times.
