    This is only laid out to see what it would look like, I am excited. But which of the colors would you do the back with.

    Since it looks like you're planning to bind in the pink, I think I would use the yellowish color on the back. It's very pretty! :-D :-D

    I'm a fan of muslin myself oh and sheets that I find on clearance :) If you want actual fabric I vote for the white fabric that has the red in it.

    I would either use the yellow solid or the small pink floral on white background fabric as the backing.

    The yellow-ish color on the back would look nice since you're binding with the pink.

    Do you have leftovers? or are you purchasing more fabric?

    Any of your fabrics would be nice .... or do a scrappy backing using all your leftovers.

    It's going to be a lovely quilt!

    I was thinking of these two, also, would be pretty on the back, with the darker binding. Love your colors! It's a lovely quilt!

    The yellow is very pretty and would make a neat backing (coming from someone who generally uses muslin on all her backings!)

    What a lovely top. The colors are gorgeous and I think I have to agree with the yellow, the tiny print, or the border print. Whatever you do it will only make it more beautiful!!
