    I think I would go for a red or green backing.

    I'd use that lovely dark sage green and bind in the same color -- love your quilt!

    I'd say a green print backing, and a darker green binding~~ JMHO

    Great top and I vote for green too. If you put a nice med. green on the back you can reverse the quilt for spring with a pretty bed runner on top.

    Very pretty! I, too, would probably go for green. Any idea on what color thread you want to use to quilt? That would be my deciding factor I think. Post a pic when done!

    I would use a Christmas print and use a solid color that works with both sides for binding.

    My first thought was green the lighter ones in the quilt would look nice I think. Good luck finishing it's the hard part I think. Sue

    I was thinking along the lines of lighter color. Maybe a not-very-busy red print on a cream background. IMHO
