    I like the first one, it is more subtle...very complimentary together.

    I like them both but #1 is more soothing.

    I really liked #1 and expected it to be my choice - until like Suzette, I saw #2. Either will be beautiful go with your gut and which looks more pleasing to you.

    Oh go for the first one. It's very smashing.
    Each project adds to my stash of knowledge. Love sharing the results with anyone who'll look.

    That's what I was going to say.

    I just want to add an aside that surfaced through this thread. It seems that matching colors has become a very
    important part of the creativity in quilting.

    Now how many people out there are affraid of picking fabrics?
    How many of you picked the yellow background?

    When I looked at this very nice quilt the first thing that absorbed me was the feeling of the quilt, not the color.

    The yellow feels warm and safe and cozy.

    The blue feels like a spring breeze and kites and fresh air.

    I think we should try once and a while to feel rather than look at quilts. It makes a huge difference in what we want to accomplish.

    I think alot of the language we use comes from fabric shops and advertisements which wants us to 'match' everything and it stifles our creativity and our confidence in our own views and choices.

    Just wanted to speak to what I noticed in this thread. I love your quilt and am anxious to see it completed.
    peace
