    Is this sewn to very wide white borders, or is it pinned to a white fabric of some kind?

    Yeah that is the consensus I am getting asking a friend, my mom and the comments here... it will be fine. I wonder if machine quilting it with a bark color wil break up some of the blue. too. I dislike that blue a lot.. LOL.. so that is I am sure part of it.

    The person who is getting it is my daughters friend.. daughter says it is fine too.. . ... I had not talked to her yet , she texted me to say she thought there was going to be yellow.... but she just emailed and said it is fine ;). good not ripping it out. It is done !! :). Onto other things !! yes a learning experience.

    I think it looks lovely. Binding with the yellow might make the yellows in the prints pop. Your friend will love it, not only because she picked the colors, but because she has such a dear friend willing to do this for her! :D

    The first quilt I made, I loved the blocks and when I laid them out, they looked horrid. Someone pointed out to me that I had NO blue in it and that was missing...

    I think your quilt is very pretty. Your feeling is most likely because you don't like the color.

    I like it. Different strokes for different folks I guess. I bet she will love it.
