Table Topper is Quilted

I still need to do the binding...but my table topper has been basted and quilted. I'm pretty happy with how it's coming along. It's certainly not perfect but once it's on a table and a centerpiece or something is sitting on it...I don't think you'll notice the mistakes. :-)

Which fabric?

I've finished my table runner. Of course once it's sewn together you notice all the things you missed. But I am NOT ripping out my stitches and starting over. I did my best not to get any two colors next to each other/etc and yet once it's sewn together I find at least 3 places so far where like colors are next to each other. Argh! ;-P

Now I am trying to decide on a backing fabric. Here is part of the table runner, layed on top of the two fabrics with a little of the binding fabric showing at the top of the runner so you can take that into account as well.

Thoughts/opinions? The one on the left is less busy and has dark and light browns in in. The one on the right has different browns/reds but is busy and is very 'fall leafy' and most of the fabrics on the runner are floral with leaves that aren't similar.
