    Here's my post about the 2 wallhangings I'm doing for April wedding gifts. http://www.quiltingboard.com/t-111232-1.htm

    I pieced a sample block of the first one and am not too sure of the colors. I'll wait to say what I think, so I can get your true opinions. Thanks for helping. :)

    Would you change anything? Order of fabrics? Add/delete fabrics? Ok as is?

    Not sure of the last dark color, but if you pulled it out of the small fabric square then go for it...Can't tell if camera did true color or not, but love the rest for sure

    Consider making the outside color narrower than the other ones, the narrower you make a color the more intense the eye will perceive it. I learned this when working as a custom picture framer and working with matting for 25 years. I have just started getting into quilting, but color is color no matter what medium you work with.

    You know.... I like them all, but I might change the order. that way they would go from more blue to more green.
