    I too think it is perfect the way it is. I think the bright green changed to the background would be way to much. It is gorgeous just the way it is.

    Beautiful job. Seeing it together in the 2nd pic the bright green to me takes away from the angels. Maybe if you did the change you said it would tie it more together.

    If you have enough fabric, play around with it and try switching the background fab to the bright green and put the background fabric around the white block and see what that does. At least lay the purples and fairy pieces on a piece of the bright green to save from cutting it and see what you think then.
    I love this block and the way it is, but who knows what a color change can always do for one. What is the name of this block if I might ask? Is this from a special pattern?

    That is going to be a BEAUTIFUL quilt when it is finished whatever color you go with.

    Do you think the harshness of the white might be part of what is off?

    i didn't like it when i first saw it, but when i saw the entire thing, i loved it. very subtle. i love the way it flows. i think that if you put in too much bright green it will look garish and ruin the dreamy appearance. what will you do in the center?

    I like it as is- really a beautiful block. If you really think you need to change something, try the bright green in the corner of the block opposite of the bright green and see how that looks. Hope you understand this.

    Oh, wow, after reading all the postings, I hate to make my contribution....when I seen the last photo all I see is the green in the center (and that might be because of the "white" center) but that being said, I would change the green in the center and leave the rest of it alone. Just MHO. And I will always be a beginner.

    I like it the way it is. Have you considered putting a dark green in the center. These are flowers, and the flower would put the "stem" area in shadow, so whatever goes in there would probably need to be darker. BTW - not sure if it was intentional or not, but where the outside corner triangles meet in the inside of the block looks like it was fussy cut. Upon further closer look at the four pieces of the block - ALL of the green triangles appear to have been fussy cut. Wow! Anxious to see the whole quilt. Great fabrics and great colors.
