    Do I just have the wrong pattern? I am completely undecided on this quilt and it's quickly becoming no fun at all. I loved the quilt that someone on here made for her granddaughters wedding.....maybe I should change to something like that. Opinions? When you are totally up-in-the-air on something, is that an indication that you need to go back to square one??

    check out Judys mystery train think its the third one she has done an irish chain and there are dozens of examples of peoples work some worked some not so well.. I did it and loved my irish chain came out well one white one purple that really stood out. I think less color is more sometimes. If you go with what you have started out with the first catches my eye the most but maybe the lighter blue blocks would stand out more? I truly suggest you go see how everyone else did it and then you can make a better judgement call on what you want in YOUR quilt. after all your the one living with it in the end.

    I'm very happy you put some pattern in the fabric, but I am going to agree with prism here. You need a neutral to set off your colors - all your hues are the same, except for the black, of course. You need some color play, I think. The colors you are using are the same values.

    I like the aqua version best. For the same reason as last week, I like the lighter colors for a wedding and darker/black for a funeral.
    Go forth and sew!

    Number 1 - black in #3 takes away from the other colors.

    Be sure to check out the link provided by Prism99. This shows what the quilt looks like when many 9-patches are put together.
    When you show a little picture of just a few patches, you don't see the effect of the rows of blocks that will appear in the quilt when you have more together. So no. 3 is an Irish Chain, but instead of black, put the background fabric there. Using background fabric in the 4 patches of the 9-patch, and 5 randomly placed colors for the 5 other patches will give you the effect seen in the link.
    The Single Irish Chain pattern is made up from a 9-patch, alternating the background fabric and the main fabric. (Quote from link.)

    First or last. I like black so I am drawn to that but....in the end it is what pleases you and your eye.
