Welcome to the Quilting Board!
Like them both, but I'd go for the darker one. JMHO. Please, post a photo of the finished quilt...your colors are beautiful!
The only place that housework comes before quilting is in the dictionary.
I almost keep my opinion to myself because of all the votes for the lighter one but personally I like the darker gray, I think it makes the other colors appear richer, that's just my opinion
I think they are both good, but the darker one adds a little more drama - would be my choice.
I agree with using the darker gray for a better contrast. So that's what it will be. I do thank everyone for there opinions & suggestions. This is one to do in the fall.
I think the lighter is best.
Lighter grey, or even lighter than the one pictured.
I vote for the lighter one on the left.
