I think I like the back of this quilt almost as much as the front. I love the way the back compliments the front, and is similar, but not the same. I'm not sold on the fabric combo, but figure it's a quilt back, so I don't need to be too picky. One of the great things is that the back is entirely from my stash, so it technically didn't cost me a dime (my husband thinks my thinking in slightly skewed). I'm going to buy more 505 so that I can baste and quilt this baby before our upcoming camping trip. We'll see. I've been put in charge of food and clothing for the boys and me.
