    Love it 'as is'! IMHO, I would put a complimentary packed floral in the centers.

    I don't think changing the bright green to the light purple would change the contrast much. I love it just the way it is.

    You have done an amazing job. I would put a light purple square in the middle instead of the white. The center square is fighting for attention :lol: :XD:

    the white actually is paper and not fabric. I have not found the right fabric for there yet. have three different ones that I am looking at right now. It just depends on what I end up doing with the greens.

    Your block is great as it is! The background helps to accentuate the lady in the center. If you did a bright green background, it would compete with the lady. JMHO~

    Quandaries such as this would have me in a Photoshop type program, or multiple photo copies/color prints, to assemble more blocks, to see what the resulting pattern would be.
    Isn't this what makes designing so much fun? After deciding on a block, or block set, comes sashing or not.

    Personally, the colors, as they are, are striking. It may be fun to make a stack & whack out of the focus fabric for the center. I too will be looking for a finale on this.

    I am with you on that!! the dark purple next to angels seem to close her in. not sure about border if you change the purples.. I find myself being too matchy matchy at times so if the center square is the bright green I think the border should be too. I am leaning towards the lighter green for center frame. I think I would go with the angel/girl for the centblock and make her the focus- if you just put anothr color into the block you will probably loose the girl all together!! Jus my opinion though. I am new at this and havent done too much!!
    Cant wait to see it done!! Your work is great and the colors are so vibrant and go together very well-you have a great eye for color!!!

    I think it is fine as it is. What is the name of the pattern and of the angel/fairy fabric and where did you get it?

    The dark blue predominates. Its tone is darker than the others
    In the background of the lady notice there are light aqua and turquoise colors. Try a batik with those colors.
    Happy quilting

    I would take the white and cut up the girl fabric and use that in it's place.

    A beautiful piece. I think that the outer blueish/green fabric is too much the same value as the fairies piece. Possibly changing that outer fabric to match the golden hair of the fairies would be more striking. Good luck.
