I vote for both!
a la http://www.dioramarama.com/2006/06/quilt_back.html or http://losabia.wordpress.com/ or http://www.flickr.com/photos/mamaurchin/485753772/ or http://www.flickr.com/photos/buttonsmagee/428370338/in/set-72157600906408181/ (I love this!)

Half and half, with a thin brown strip running through the center and may be a few other fabrics from the front?


I was leaning towards the Red, but then saw the attachments up above, and I agree! both could make quite an interest backing. Especially if you have some pieces that bring in more of a solid red/pink and green items. Then ground it will some brown. Very need quite top!


I'm glad to see I wasn't the only one that found Hillary's quilt riveting! Yours is both unique and lovely, and I'm in love with the idea of this project all over again. I vote for the green, by the way.

Oh, neat! I vote red, though I also like the idea of using both.


Green Green!!

So awesome. I can't wait to see the finished product!


love the quilt top. i vote for neither. i think you need to go get something orangish. if you have to go with what you have then i pick green.


Go for the red. It'll be fine on the back.


What Jene said.
I love this piece.


Is that a monkey in a red hat or a gnome? I love gnomes...and my vote is for the green!


Wow, that is really beautiful


I third Jene's suggestion - I think something orangey would be perfect!


I remember seeing this - love the finished product (well, almost finished!) I really like the windowpane effect - reminds me of stained glass. Not sure about either fabric for the backing. Although both are fabrics are great on their own, not sure if it complements all the effort that you've put into it. That said though...I'm leaning more towards the red, but...how about something in the chocolate brown family that will match the front? I think the front is so beautiful that the back should be just what you want and not something you have to talk yourself into.

Beatiful I love all the aqua and deep brown together.
I'm leaning towards that green backing.


Wow that looks great. Love the singular gnome in the quilt and the orange patch. I can't stop looking at it. I just love it. For the backing I really like the red color.


Oh man I love that quilt. I think the green backing is my favorite...


I'd probably go with the red because of the blue in that print, but I agree with other commenters -- why choose just one?




I like the green, but either would be fine. It's the back, so isn't going to be right next to the front after all. :)


I like the green. :)
