Batik Stripe UFO Progress

The back is done.  But, I'm not sure I love it.

The squares were leftovers, and the stripe fabric was actually the first one I bought to do the project.  But once I had assembled all the other coordinating stripe fabrics, this one's colors just didn't fit in.  I thought the fabric was so pretty that it would make a good backing.  Sounds logical right?  Well, now that I look at it all together I find myself having a conversation with myself going something like this:

"It sure is a pretty fabric on the bolt."
"Yes, but I'm not sure it goes with the squares."
"Well, it goes with some of the squares."
"It sure would be a waste not to use it, and you have nothing else to use it for right now."
"Hmmm, does that gold part make it look like a baby has thrown up on it??
"Oh, come on, Jen!  It is the BACK of the darn quilt!  No one is even going to see it except by accident!"

What do you guys think?

I LOVE comments, they make my day! Most of the time I am too distracted to respond right away, but I DO read them...always.

When I respond, I usually do it via email. Sometimes Google makes this easy and sometimes it doesn't. I usually only reply when it is easy. Just sayin.

Obviously, I can't reply to you at all if you are a no reply blogger. Also, sorry to Anonymous commentors, too much spam lately. You will have to leave a comment another way.

Have a Super Sparkly Day!
