    I'm getting ready to work on the center of this quilt and am afraid I am using too many different colors. Do any of you have suggestions, critiques? Would appreciate any help. Thanks

    The stained glass windows in churches have many, many different colors. Waay more than this quilt has already.

    I'd love to learn this technique, so please post when finished. I'd love to see it.

    It iss just beautiful. Your color choices are fabulous - the Opaque fabic is gorgeous. Are you using a pattern? If so, how many colors did they show.

    Thanks for your input. I have been looking at pictures on the internet and am getting a few ideas on how to progress.

    I am using a pattern for actual stained glass but the book doesn't have any color pictures. Only the cover.

    IMHO you can't have too many colors when doing stained glass :D
    I absolutely love what you have done so far :D:D:D

    I don't think you have too many colors at all. Stained glass windows typically have many colors. I think it might look like "too many" because you don't have the lead lines done yet. Once you do the lead, each section will be very defined, and I think you will be glad you used many colors! I can't wait to see the finished project.

    No such thing as "too many" colors when it comes to stained glass!!
