    I am making this quilt for my mom for a lady she is working with who is have a baby. I am not sure if I like the yellow, please tell me what you think. I am having a hard time figuring out what fabric to use in that spot this was my first option, not sure what else I would use as of yet. Thanks for the input!

    Personally, I'm not fond of the yellow in it. Since you are using a dark purple and the light lavender, how about a pale pink in that spot? Or maybe even white? Otherwise, I'd use the same plaid that's already in it.

    I'd stick with the purple floral print in the yellow areas. But I'm a Purple Fiend.

    I like the yellow where you have it. It picks up the yellow in the pink print.

    I see it with your yellow fabric as the border also. That will really make the yellow in the quilt 'pop'. I like it and babies like different bright colors in a blanket or quilt. The baby will love it!

    I like the yellow. It brings out the subtle yellows in the prints and makes the quilt come to life.

    I would vote for some shade of purple/lavendar.

    I think this is going to be a pretty quilt. The yellow brings out the yellow in the green. One suggestion is another green? or a different shade of pink or purple. Maybe? darker? :-D

    The problem I have too is that our Joanns is moving to a bigger store so right now they are very limited on fabric. Do you think one of the other fabrics I used would look good in place of the yellow?
