Next project

As I work on the B&W quilt, I am thinking about what my next project will be. After finishing that vintage bowtie quilt for a lady I work with I think I would like to finish at least one of the two vintage tops I have. These I think were in boxes of fabric pieces that my SIL gave me years and years ago. There were these two quilt tops and a start of a third top. This top is approx. 65" x 84" and lays pretty flat.
I was looking around for backing that I could use. I would really like a scrappy plaid back, but I don't have any small yardage of any plaids.  I only have yardage of a piece of navy blue plaid and I think that is too dark for the back. I will have to dig around my fabric storage room and see if I can find something. I really don't want to buy any fabric. The other top is this four patch quilt. It doesn't show in the pictures, but the rows start to veer off starting with that far left row. I think this top could benefit from a border. It is not that big of a top right now. I have lots of vintage fabric and the vintage scraps that came with the top so maybe I could use that to add on to this.
I also dug out this piece of vintage fabric that a friend gave me that I think would make a fun back for the four patch top. I don't think I want to put a print on the back of the plaid top.
There was a beautiful pink and lavender sunrise this morning.

I can't believe I didn't read my blogs yesterday...
I put a print on the back of my last plaid quilt. It is all over tree rings with a rust background and I really like it with the plaids. I sold a plaid Log Cabin top to a friend and she put a floral print like the delicate Liberty Lawn prints on the back.
