Default I need help from my colour coordinators LOL

Hi everyone

I,m looking for ideas for the strips in between each block .
I tried some thing new and quilted the blocks as i made them .
Now i,m not sure what colour to bind them all together with .
Was thinking the yellow or the black but does not look right to me .
Thank goodness you are here to help me out and thanks
Tom

I like the black. It really highlights the colors in the block.

How about a purple a little darker than the background? I do like the way the black makes it pop.

I know this is not given as a choice, but I would go with Orange or purple or red. I feel the black is too stark and the yellow doesn't pop enough. Sorry! Can't wait to see what you choose and when the quilt is done. have fun!

Love your quilt! I like the black. The yellow brings out all the yellow in the blocks, so that is what you see. You lose the design in the stars.

I agree that the black is too strong and the yellow is blending too much with the yellow from the blocks. Try one of the other colours from your blocks: maybe red, purple or green?

The black makes the colors really stand out in the blocks. I would go with that.

The red does really pop it out.
But maybe to much .

I guess I'm the odd woman out. I really like the yellow. Although, it does really make the yellow in all the blocks stand out.

If you want to go not so stark as the black....What about dark blue. Of course, I suggest that because the background fabric is reading blue on my computer. If it is really lavender, What about a darker coordinating purple as the sashing that way you don't loose the stars.

Sorry, we were posting at the same time. NOT a fan of the red camp.
