    The first one totally rocks. It really shows off the fabric. I felt in the second one that the background was competing with the block and that the green was to heavy with the bright feel of the the block. Just me.

    Do you have a preference?

    I think the first works because you don't have a deep blue in the plate. The 2nd two kind of pull in the pieces that are similar colors and wash them out. I think you'd get the same thing with white or red since those are predominant in your plate. The background in the first is a bit busy, but the color is perfect. Perhaps you could find a more tone on tone deep blue?

    Beautiful plate BTW!!

    You were posting as I was still composing, hee hee.

    I think white would wash it out and red would overpower it as you've used it in the plate already. I think that's why the dark blue seems to work so well. It's not a dominate color in the fabs you chose but it picks up from the fab you did use and incorporates just the right amount of red.

    Like you I had the same feelings, the bright takes away from the Plate and makes the blue plates disappear and the green seems too dark I do prefer the dark blue but don't want to make a choice that ends up being in poor taste! lol!
