Question HELP - I need suggestions, again.

I had posted a picture before asking what color to use for the sky in a "Flying Geese" quilt. I thought I knew what I wanted & then some suggested a gray. Which I had not even thought of. So now which one would you choose for the sky? The one on the left or the one on the right. Thanks for all suggestions.

I would choose the lightest. It will give you a good background for the beautiful colors.

​Lighter one for more contrast.

Can you find an even lighter gray?

I like the lighter gray with the darker colors, and the darker gray with the lighter colors.

That didn't help much, did it?

So far everybody agrees with my husband on the lighter gray. I had thought the darker one for a stormy looking sky.
