    I'm making a quilt for my DDIL. All the fabrics are batiks except for one. Does it look out of place? It's the green/blue mottled one. Please be honest. I want this to be special-after all she's about to give birth to my DGS. She's a very special young lady and I want this quilt to be really nice.

    I'm having problems trying to post a picture. I've not posted from the iPad before. Please bear with me.

    well -- I'll be the oddball --- it jumps out at me. I've developed a "rule of thumb" --- if I have to ask if it looks right, then I must not think it's right, so I change it. Otherwise, it will ALWAYS be the one piece your eye goes for!!!! Just MHO.

    Looks good - picks up the blue from the fabric with the pink.
