    Donna Rae here you go . I've been pretty sick the past 3 weeks or I would have already posted this . One side is blues and the other multi colors . Actually I did a boo to start with . I had planned to not put a plain block betwween them , but the booger fairy struck ! He likes me a lot at times :shock: I mistakenly put the fabric I was going to use as the seam covering strips on the back of my blocks ! What a dummy ! Ok , I bought a medium plain beige { it looks ok on multi colored side } I liked black on the blue side . Or would you say black on both sides ? I need some help from my quilting buddies :D Take a look at my pics and see what you think . Annie

    IMHO...I would use the dark beige on the multi colored side. I would like the black if you didn't have the beige plain squares mixed in, but with those in there...I think I like the beige better.

    I like a lighter color for the strips too. The black just looks too stark in contrast to the rest of the colors. If you like a darker color, do you have something in a blue tone? IMHO

    I also like the lighter color for the multi side. It is going to be really pretty. I like all the diffrent colors.

    Thanks for all your input . I thought black would make the colors pop , didn't think about it being stark looking . I will try the beige a try on a couple of sample blocks . Let you know how it looks . Annie

    That is a neat idea Reversible 9 patch. I too think the beige for the stripping. Very pretty quilt.
