    I want some input here. I did this with leftovers from some strips I bought because of 2 fabrics in it and one of my daughters wanted a quilt and this is all I had to work with at the moment. Started this last fall but had to get some fabric for the border/ My question is what to back and bind it with.

    Sorry about that.
    Sometimes electronics and I do not have a working relationship.

    Hmmm, first impulse, chocolate brown....second, deep rose. It is so pretty, I am sure whatever you choose will be great!

    You've got lots of possibilities because of the variety in the top!

    I'd look for a print that coordinates with it .... take your quilt top with you and audition fabrics.

    If you have pieces of what you have used in the front, you can use them to do a pieced back.

    Brown or deep rose sounds good. Maybe I could find a stripped or pattern with both those colors in it. The two seem to be a popular nursery theme so I probably could.

    Just wanted to say I really like it. You could back it with any of the colors that you have in the top.

    You could use any of the colors in the quilt. What a beautiful piece. Will we see the finish project?

    Just as soon as I get it finished. It may be a while because of finances.
