    Thank you very much brenmar. Another shop to take my pennies, lol. In all my googling, I'd not once come across that one.

    Will you be quilting it yourself? Might want to choose the backing fabric that looks well with the thread you will be using. Me, I like to hide my quilting because no matter how careful there are errors.

    As an aside, where did you manage to find the wide fabric please?

    If it's a quilt that going to be used frequently I'd go with the brown - cream will look dirty more quickly than the brown.

    I like color on the back of my quilts. I would go with the brown.

    That's a lovely quilt! And both your backing choices sound like they would work very well. I personally have no problem putting a cream backing on my quilts (and have, many, many times ), but you seem reluctant, so maybe go with the dark brown?

    What would you do ...

    I've made the Big Star Quilt exactly like Jenny's tutorial - same fabric etc.

    The Big Star Quilt - Quilting Made Easy! - YouTube

    There's not a lot of choice of 108" wide backing fabric here in the UK (I don't want to piece) and I have two samples. One is a small patterned dark brown which blends well with the quilt top colours - the other is a cream on cream design. Which would you go for - cream doesn't seem right for a backing somehow.
Working...
