    Lovely charms quilt backing?

    What fabric would you recommend for the backing & what color thread to use for the FMQ? I have the top all sewn I need to buy the backing. Of course I used The alter ego pattern, I love the fabric & the pattern.

    I've made four quilts using this fabric. I used a 108" backing from Hancock in mottled purple. It is $14.99 per yard, but of course, I bought it with my 40% off coupon because it is very seldom on sale. I also bought the same yardage at fabric.com, and it was about the same price as the Hancock was on sale. It is very pretty on the back of the quilt.

    It isn't a Moda Marble, but it is very similar to this. This is a decent price for a Moda wide backing, I paid almost $20 a yard for one at MSQC!

      Jean was that a local Hancocks? I found something similar at fabric.com #6698 by Moda. Or #0324281. TY
