Quilty Weekend

I was in a dumpy mood Saturday, and had a bad headache.. Now I am not the type of person to just sit around, so I started peicing together charms from the I Spy swap..
The quilt top came together pretty quickly, due to already having all the main peices cut (and being toddler bed sized!). Plus, I have a ton of charms left over so I think another I-spy quilt top is in my future. If anyone is interested in some i-spy charms, email me/comment as I would be willing to share!
Anyone have any suggestions for backing fabric? Maybe a solid with a strip of more I-spy fabric? Just a solid as the top is already so busy? Any suggestions are welcome!

I love this quilt! I think it's great that you put the white sashing between each block. All of the I-spy quilts I've seen have the blocks against each other with no sashing and they are so busy that I've never wanted to make one- your quilt inspires me! I'd be interested in your extra charms if you want to swap. I'm not sure if I have enough fun fabric to share (I don't tend to buy novelty fabric). How many/what should I send you in exchange? Great job!

Oh, and I think the back would like nice just solid, or you could use a big fun bright pattern (stripes? polka dots?). It's not like you look at the back and front at the same time, right?
