    okay, I am in a quandry. this block is just not looking exactly right to me. I just can't figure it out. can anyone else help get me to the right "look". I am thinking of changing the blueish outer fabric to the "bright" green strip at the bottom. I think that is what the problem is here. what do you guys think?

    here is a semi completed block.

    this is generally what the block would look like when finished. ignore the white center. I haven't put the fabric there yet. not sure what i am going to be putting there.

    I like the way it looks myself, but if you were going to change it, I would go with the bright green.

    Agree with the bright green. The current background tends to blend with the purples.

    It is very beautiful. My eyes want to switch the light purple with the dark purple. It appears to be an amazing pattern. All your work is beautiful.

    I think its pretty as is, and if you put borders a bright green border, I think would even bring it out more, but being a newby that just what I think...LOL

    It's gorgeous! I would definitely leave the greens as they are. Having a more toned green (i.e. it contains a bit more grey) in the background than in the foreground means that it adds depth to the quilt, giving something of a 3D effect (in a good way). The foreground green is brought forward, focusing attention on whatever you are going to have in the white square-on-point in the middle. The background green certainly doesn't blend in with the purples at all, they're perfectly well distinguished.

    I am absolutely salivating over those batiks, especially the elegant curves of the background green one.

    Once I saw it together I vote for leaving it. If I were going to change it , it would be to something with a little more blue in it. To me it looks like your fairy is sitting in the center of a flower.

    I think that it is perfect the way it is. It is a beautiful block.

    To me the two greens are so close in color that they tend to blend. Not enough contrast. I'd either change the center green or change the outer green if they were my blocks.

    I would try a golden color like her hair in place of the bright green stripe on there.

    I agree. I really love it the way it is, when you put the blocks together it's beautiful. If I were to change anything, it would be to switch the two purples. Nice work! Can't wait to see the progress.

    I'm in agreement with the majority - it's very nice as it is.

    It may depend on what you put in the center and if you want the "fairies/angels" to be the focus. I think the bright green pulls you eye away from the faries/angels so I would go with lighter green Also I would switch lighter purple with darker one.

    Personally I would change the very light triangle. ( center when put together) to something with a little more color in it. Otherwise I really like it. The purples go beautifully together and with the princess(?)
