    Question Help I need suggestions

    I want to make a Flying Geese Rainbow quilt, but don't know which material to use for the sky. Would you use 1, 2, or 3 ???

    I vote for #3. I like your rainbow fabrics.

    Well, I'm no help. I'd pick #1. Maybe #2. Not #3. Isn't that funny? 3 votes and they are all for different fabrics!

    I love your rainbows and think this quilt could be awesome. Not that you want to bring another color to the suggestion box, but I think if it were mine I'd look for something in mottled grey.

    Do you mean to use a mottled gray for the "sky" or add it for the "Geese"? Now you have me thinking in a whole new direction. LOL

    I was thinking a mottled grey for the sky also, like it had just got done raining and the rainbow pops out with a little sun
    I vote for #1 at first I liked #2 but I think 1 is the med of the three and would make a good choice.

    I like 2. But you go with what your heart and eyes lead you too, as they all would work

    Though they are all lovely fabrics, I think they compete with the rainbow colors and will dominate the quilt. My vote would be for the mottled grey or another more subtle color for the sky.

    I like the idea of gray, black, or white. If not, then #3 - The #1 and #2 are too blendy with the red.

    I vote for 3, 1 and 2 are too close to one of the colors in the geese. Gray or black would be nice also!
