    I think it is very pretty as it is. However, if I had to suggest a change, I think I would like it with just plain bold purple strips. I think that would make the blues and other purple hues just stand out more.

    I love the fabric and the colors. For me it is very relaxing. I took a piece of paper and blocked the stripes with yellow/gold in them (left to right) so that only the two left stripes were visible. That would be the adjustment I would suggest and let the yellow in the fabric just be the sun breaking through the other colors. What is your border/binding going to be? Perhaps frame it in narrow yellow and continue with your border? Please keep us posted. Great first quilt!

    Now that I look at the pattern image , I can see I'm missing the interlocked idea that she's got going. Not sure how that happened...

    The border will be blue, quite similar to the pattern; maybe a bit brighter. I'm thinking maybe take the paler yellow out all together and put the lighter blue in it's place, then use some of the other "blender" fabric where the lighter blue is.

    Yellow adds warmth to a quilt, try grouping the yellow strips light to dark...will give more of a bargello look...and maybe group all the yellow strips together

    OK, this rearrangement looks a lot better and more like the pattern. I need to figure out what to do about 1 more blending fabric. To use more of one that's already in use, or get another one!

    I like it much better with the bright yellow gone. How about bringing in more of the deep purple stripe?

    layout

    I think it looks okay but if you are not happy with it move them around until you do like it.
