    I am making this quilt for my mom for a lady she is working with who is have a baby. I am not sure if I like the yellow, please tell me what you think. I am having a hard time figuring out what fabric to use in that spot this was my first option, not sure what else I would use as of yet. Thanks for the input!

    Personally, I'm not fond of the yellow in it. Since you are using a dark purple and the light lavender, how about a pale pink in that spot? Or maybe even white? Otherwise, I'd use the same plaid that's already in it.

    I'd stick with the purple floral print in the yellow areas. But I'm a Purple Fiend.

    I like the yellow where you have it. It picks up the yellow in the pink print.

    I see it with your yellow fabric as the border also. That will really make the yellow in the quilt 'pop'. I like it and babies like different bright colors in a blanket or quilt. The baby will love it!

    I like the yellow. It brings out the subtle yellows in the prints and makes the quilt come to life.

    I would vote for some shade of purple/lavendar.

    I think this is going to be a pretty quilt. The yellow brings out the yellow in the green. One suggestion is another green? or a different shade of pink or purple. Maybe? darker? :-D

    The problem I have too is that our Joanns is moving to a bigger store so right now they are very limited on fabric. Do you think one of the other fabrics I used would look good in place of the yellow?

    I like the thought of the yellow, although I think I might have used a softer yellow. To me, it's just a little too bright.

    I agree with the purple floral - with the pink centers, it draws the pinks & purples together and provides a focus.

    Whatever you choose will be lovely and very appreciated!!

    I like the yellow also. yellow and purple are complementary colors and look great together. I would also use the same yellow for a thinner border before the green.

    Yellow is a good idea, but I agree that it is too brightn and it being a solid color. All the other fabrics are some kind of print and I think that one should too. I think a yellow print of some sort in that spot.
    Really like the fabrics used in this (except the yellow of course lol)

    Pretty Pretty. I think I agree with JudyG and maybe try a softer yellow or maybe white with a little yellow print in it. Still, all and all it is pretty just like it is. I'm looking forward to see what you do. :)

    Scratch the second part of that comment - wouldn't work with this quilt.

    I would use the pink plaid and not add another color.

    I like the yellow, but a lighter shade would look better since there's yellow in the block next to it!
