    I would use the peach for the backing especially if you could find one with a peach on peach design

    Very pretty!!
    Since you are machine quilting it, you could use batik or quilting cotton as backing :D:D:D

    Love those batiks.

    Have to ask. What makes this a "Tatoo" wedding quilt (assuming of course you meant Tattoo as in skin ink).

    Well, my nephew is getting married and his wife owns a Tattoo
    shop (sorry sp. ?) And they both have lots of Tattoo's, so I wanted to do something with some color and not a traditional.
    I think it would a nice size for a couch.

    Try one of the "Stonehenge" fabrics (by Northcott). They come in lots of different colors and wide width (if you need it).

    I like the green or the cranberry color you have in the front for a back!

    I would pick your favorite color from the quilt and do binding and backing in that color.

    yeah, i'd like to see the darker purple on the back (or at least as a thin binding). you may want to select something that works with or at least doesn't work against colors they have in their home.

    Ah OK thanks. I asked because I am currently making a quilt based on my brothers tattoos. The quilting motifs are replicas of some of them. I sketched them out and am hand quilting them. I think some of today's tattoo designs make the most wonderful quilting designs so I was wondering if that was your intent to quilt it with tattoo designs.

    Beautiful quilt! I love the fabric and colors! When I read Tatoo this was not at all what I was expecting! Tatoo in my mind doesn't bring up anything beautiful. :lol: :lol:

    I love the colors - I would probably try to pull something that coordinates with one of the front colors for the back.

    I think it would be nice with a nice muslin would make it kinda retro.
