    Gold , Purple & White are Vikings, the green was added just to off set all the bright colors. More as a representation of the playing field.

    I'll have looked at the Green Bay colors to see how close the colors are and yes they are Gold, White & Dark Green.

    I think it's still ok to use the Green here since it represents the playing field.

    Yep, the third one. Really a good example of how different layouts can change the look of the quilt!

    I think the center background should stay one color, but not sure about the green. Or perhaps leave it white with a purple border around it. The "expanse" of it seems too big, IMO.

    Love digital cameras for this. You can pull up all the different layouts on the screen at once and compare them.

    Great quilt!

    I'll have to go look at the Green Bay colors to see how close the colors are.
    I would leave out the green if you're doing Minnesota. Green and gold are Green Bay Packer's colors and they're practically mortal enemies.

    LOL I take it that will cause a lot of interesting conversation if I leave it in then. LOL Still throwing things around so I still have time to think about it but thanks for the heads up on that because I really didn't know that.

    totally agree with dunster. Still the green center seems to tone the brightness a bit.

    That's one of the problems with quilting. There are just too many choices! I think I like the third one best. But really, they're all nice. I'm sure he'll be happy with whatever you decide.

    I like the third one better to. I think the green background on the viking is nice.

    I so agree big time.

    I liked the white behind the Viking. Makes it pop. It disappeared on the dark green.

    Ok with considerations to the Viking vs Green Bay I decided to try 2 other fabrics that I have. What do you think about these?

    This one is a molted blue colr sort of like a sky

    I like #4, also--it frames the Viking nicely. Nix on the new fabrics.

    Still way too much yellow. We are more purple and white with a lot less yellow then you have. Sorry. No green.

    ok I googled the team's pictures and you are right they do have lots of purple and white with a bit of gold so I redrew up my quilt to see what you might think.

    hope this comes out ok but the colors are dark purple, white, gold and black
