    Which triangle do you guys like better? I am at a loss. I was thinking that the second triangle would go pinkish color in the first two points then the next would be a purple then the last set could be green. Not sure yet. It will look kinda like a pointy flower or a sunrise type thing. Clear as mud?

    pink in the first two big points then a purple in the next

    Get your colored pencils out and start coloring. The big amont in the forground is hard to decide on. What is going to be? It is quite lovely as is but what do you really want in that corner.
    Do you want that big of a section in the corner?

    I agreemake some copies and color them in to give yourself a visual of how they would look with your top. When I want shades of diferent colors I find crayons give me more choices than colored pencils.

    I do want it that big. It's either supposed to look like a giant flower or a sunrise. I am just right now trying to decide which I want there. Then will make copies to pp on. I just can't decide which way to go. it helps getting feed back when I can't make up my mind.

    It is still hard in the second one match the points that would put the pinkish color right in the center with the changes of purple on either side of the pink. Pink on the large points every other one and tjen green with 3 purples in the background Just get those colored pencils and goooooooooo.

    Both are beautiful! I like the first one, I'm afraid the second would get busy and distract from the block. Can't wait to see it finished!

    I am liking the second one. The first one seems a little plain to go with the wonderful center. I would also work on the colors before sewing just to get an idea of what it will look like. Can not wait to see the finished quilt!!

    I like the second one. It seems to duplicate the points below, and I like that. Beautiful quilt!!

    I like the second one best because it goes with the quilt blocks that are already done.

    IMHO the #2 will detract from the main quilt. No.1 fits it perfectly.

    Initially I thought the first would be my choice, but as I continued to look at I realized the points in the second one mirror the points in the rest of the piece. For that reason I choose the second picture.

    wow, I couldn't get past this picture. It is gorgeous and I don't think it will matter what color or design you use. Can't wait to see it done.

    My only thought is with the forefront points. Since the 4 smaller ones are green with purples behind I would think using purple on the forefront would look well...like a reverse in colors from the smaller ones.
