    Morris Holiday Gold Guilded Fabric

    I've been hoping to make a special quilt with this pattern, when the right fabric came along, for 15 years. Now I'm disappointed. Should I leave all of the cream? Or would it help to put more black in? I want to showcase this fabulous fabric. I'd appreciate your suggestions.

    I like the cream color. I think the black would make it too dark. IMHO Nice pattern

    Personally I’m a fan of the black

    I like the black, it's more dramatic.

    I like the black. It pops the colors and else the big creme Xs predominate and draw the eye.

    Thanks for all of your comments! It looks like black is the winner. I will be spending a lot of time with my seam ripper. Sigh....

    I really like the black because it pulls the pattern together whereas the cream seems to push it apart visually. I really like that fabric; it is elegant and works so nicely in the pattern you have chosen.

    I really like the black too - adds a lot of drama and showcases the colors.
    A fabric stash is always missing that one fabric needed to finish the quilt on which you're working.

    I like the black. I think it's much more striking and dramatic.

    What you are calling "cream" looks very starkly white in the pictures. If it is really more muted, then that is great!
    Nice blending of assorted other fabrics!
