Top and Back

Okay, so here's that quilt that I've been working on.  The top is done, the back is almost complete, I have batting and fabric for binding, so everything is still in pieces.

The top measures 34"x54", I think.  

 Those pictures seem a bit washed out, but the colors are more vibrant in person.  The picture of the back seems too dark.  My camera settings were wonky, I think.
For the back I took the pieces that were no longer needed for the top and sewed them together.  They they got log cabin-ed into the backing along with that hideous (though very very soft) floral.  I need to add another ten inch strip of fabric to the bottom to get this to 54".  

I have yet to decide on the quilting style.  I only do straight lines.  Do I do them straight across?  My mom suggested diagonal one way.  The pattern that inspired this quilt did them diagonal both ways.  I don't know!  I need to move beyond straight lines, but I don't know how!
