Denim Quilt

My first full size quilt! Alright, so it's just a quilt top. Okay, it's not even a whole quilt top, but it will be! I cut up about 5 or 6 old pairs of jeans. (If anyone has jeans they're going to through out, let me know) I made six inch blocks and sewed them together into an almost top. I kept the pockets by the way! :) Soooo, the question is this, do I put a bandana fabric on the back and quilt(that means stitch a design through all the layers) stars an maybe cowboy boots and hats? Or, do I put a pink backing on and quilt flowers on the front? I will not be quilting something in every block. Let me know what you think of those ideas, and if you have any others, let me know.

I say do the bandana print and the stars. The denim and the pink don't go. (To everyone else-I'm trying to brake Rachel of the "everything pink" deal)

That's break, and I DO NOT have everything pink, I just happen to like GIRLY colors! :)

If you are making it to keep,you should do what YOU LIKE, not what anyone else likes. If you are drawn to pink backing and flowers, then go for it.
