    Time to make a choice--HELP!!

    I need to make a final decision on fabrics for my niece's triple Irish chain. I have two lighter coloured fabrics and cannot decide which one will blend better. I have been looking at them for so long, that I am beginning to hate both of them. I am really hoping that all of you have better eyes than me! So which one blends better??

    The first photo is the two fabrics in question. In the second and third photo, the rose fabric is not as harsh a colour as it looks, and will be used for the center of the chain.

    Never argue with an idiot. They'll drag you down the their level and beat you with experience.

    I'll break that tie. The first looks better with the dark rose solid. The lighter looks washed out.

    I like both. If I was making it, I would probably go with the 1st one.

    I prefer number 1 because the flecks of color pick up the darker tones in the other pinks. In number 2 the pink looks a little washed out.

    I like the first .... the mottling in the light pink and green seem to compete in the second set. This should be a beautiful quilt.
    Make it a scrappy happy day!

    I like them both but would choose the first with the darker speck to bring out the darks in the floral.

    Nice fabrics! It's going to look lovely!!
    May your stitches always be straight, your seams always lie flat, and your grain never be biased against you.
