    To me it isn't the color that bothers me as much as the fact that the patterns are not compatible to my eyes anyway.

    So, now I am in doubt. Please let me know what you think. I'm very willing to change the backing. That's how stash grows.

    THANKS,
    Well, I like it! I'd go for it. The boldness is great and the little purple birds are perfect. I think you'll be surprised how much you'll love it!

    Guess what? Modern fabric with a modern design? Ask yourself.....would Tula use it together?

    But whatever you answer, it's your quilt, sweetie! I think it would collaborate just fine! I like modern quilts and how the expression can be on the "adventurous" side!

    YES YES YES!

    First: it's on the back so it doesn't have to MATCH! Who says it has to match?

    Second: it coordinates wonderfully with the Tula top! Plus, I'd prefer an ENTIRE quilt of TULA vs. other designer fabric in it!

    Go with your initial instinct: USE IT!

    I am making a pillow with the Elizabeth Selfie (Tula) and the Orchid Free Fall for the back!

    Your quilt will be AMAZING!
    Blessings, DramaMama

    I agree with Chelea!

    I like it too. Besides, I like making reversible quilts that don't necessarily have to be matcha matchy. I made a quilt for a friend who loves flamingos... And the Green Bay packers. It turned out great and she loves it. So my response...be bold. I like the circles.

    I don't see the problem here.
    Love your quilt. The backing is pretty and the coral/orange colors kinda tie them together.

    Love the top, but not a fan of that backing. However, it is your quilt and really, unless it's going in a show, The backing probawont really be seen

    I agree with Drama Mama...I personally like the backing and nothing says they have to match.
