    Lovely quilt. I'm thinking red or picking up one of the greens.

    this is a lovely quilt......as for the backing, any of the colors previously mentioned would do nicely. You have many choices here. Can't wait to see what you decide!

    I would either do a green print that doesn't pick up the darkest shade of green in your quilt or red. There is a lot of dark green in it so I would think it would be a nice to change to stay away from that. Lovely quilt and done just in time!

    I would use a red or green print that goes with or compliments the front

    Oh my gosh. I'm working on a very similar quilt with very similar material. May be the same material, I can't quit tell and forgot the name of mine. I was looking at JoAnn's sale thinking a green and red plaid would be great for the back with a red binding. I'm going to offset every other row so I don't have to match all those seams though. Thanks for sharing. I wasn't sure I'd made a good choice cutting up those layer cakes but now I'm glad I did. Love your quilt.

    I think I would like the red colors with the shadowing in it.

    Any dark print would work. check your stash and see what you have. There are a lot of sales this time of year you can find something that you can use on sale.

    I would find a large floral or Christmas scene fabric, and if it has to be pieced, use a pieced strip of the colors from the front.

    I'm using these charms for a Christmas tree skirt that I saw on Missouri Star Quilt Co.'s video. I love the charms and I plan to back it with a red snowflake fabric that I have in my stash and I'll use a black binding, I think.

    I would go with a red tone on tone and then the lighter green binding. I love red for Christmas

    I'd look for a stripe or plaid with the red, black, green, cream colors in it.

    Thinking I would do something in a dark blue or brown...hard to tell because your picture is darker--and I can't tell which is dominate.

    the backing I use the most is an off white or cream color as I can get it in wide widths so it can fit a queen size quilt in one piece. I can purchase it at hancock fabrics. When on sale sometimes less than $3.00 a yard.
