    I need help ....

    I'm making a srappy, (was a)mystery quilt called Orca Bay from Quiltville.com. I used a bright yellow for the neutral color - now I'm stuck. I don't like the purple strings made originally for the quilt. I like the scrappy plain blue squares that I've inserted on the design wall (ignore the white). What does everyone else think? Is there a better color that could be used in place of the plain blue cornors?

    I like the lighter blue squares. Maybe use all light blue fabrics rather than some light and some dark....just a thought.

    I like the purple, but you that is my favorite color. The blue will calm the colors down if that is what you prefer.

    Beautiful quilt as is, don't change anything. It will be a knock-out when done.

    I like the idea of light and dark.

    It took me a minute to identify what you didn't like because I thought it looked perfect.

    I agree with Hobo2000 - I would leave it as it is. I think it is beautiful. I did the Orca Bay and worried about my colors all the way through. I was afraid that I did not like them and as you know, that quilt is way too much work not to like it. If you have a place to lay out all the pieces and step back far enough, you will see that when the entire quilt is finished, there are so many patterns that emerge, I would love to see the picture when you finish it.

    I also agree with hobo2000. I love the movement that the purple string blocks create.Name:  318755d1331414157-014.jpg
