I think theyíre all pretty but donít really go with the florals. Do you have some pinks, creams and golds?

Unless the computer altered the colors I don't think they go together either. The Floral is more muted and a dusty rose or various shade of mauve. I liked the idea of the golds and various degrees of green.

I think it is your quilt and you should use the one you like the best.

Count me as one who likes all three. I think the floral just looks a bit muted because of the white/colorless parts. The flowers themselves look just as color saturated as the other fabrics to me.

I love your choice of colors and would add a cream and a grey/green
to balance the lavenders. I don't know what pattern you plan to use,
but do love the colors. Post your progress please.
I can't wait to see your quilt.

My first reaction was "close but not quite". There is something not quite "right" with the selection.I am wondering if the print is and older fabric and the others newer and the color intensity is different. Just a guess. I have a print that is close to what you have and it is lovely in the bin but every time I take it out to us, nope, just creeps back into the bin.

Can you do a different direction and use some greens and creams? It may all depend on your stash. You asked for opinions and you got them! We are an opinionated bunch. Happy quilting, no matter what you choose.

I think you asked because you're not sure you like them either. The floral print has orchid not lavender or rose. To make the floral the main attention getter, use a cool color, ie. grey green.
