    I'm making a table runner for a girlfriend.
    [IMG]http://i26.tinypic.com/20rwvgm.jpg[/IMG]

    I'm thinking I'm going to make a pillow or something out of that center block because it doesn't match.

    I think it looks good in the middle but the white I used for background I used on the middle and left block...

    I feel like I should make another block out of the fabrics I used in the far left block and make the far right block the new center.

    WDYT?

    can you see how the far right one has a different white back ground fabric? I feel like that doesn't go. But then the lazy part of my brain tells me that with quilting it's not going to matter..... help!

    First of all, I love the blocks. The bright colors are great. I think all the colors match just fine. The only thing I can see that might not match is on my screen the block on the right appears to have a tone on tone white background. If you like the blue, change the right block to have a solid background. If the blue bothers you, move the tone on tone to the center and make a new green one for the left.

    It's going to be pretty regardless of you decision.

    What fantastic blocks--the colors are just beautiful!

    I would have all of the whites the same on the blocks. Just my opinion.

    Those are BEAUTIFUL blocks!!!!!!! I would, however, probably make another block with the same white background fab... leaving that one orphan to make a pillow or trivot/ hot pad/ or something. :D

    I absolutely LOVE that!!

    They look great! I would leave the blue and just do another with the all white background. And for the extra send it to me because I love your work :mrgreen: :lol: :wink:

    how about this?

    I rearranged and I kinda like it.... hmmm
    it kinda looks like it's supposed to go, like up in grade or something like that. I'm not sure of the right words. Like it fades from green to blue?
    Or am I imagining that?
