Default Which would you choose

I知 stuck and I am looking for feedback. I realize the contrast is not enough to make a true OBW, but I知 overall very pleased with the blocks.

1: Keep the quasi matched corners, I know they won稚 blend well. I致e only sewn 5 so far.....
2: Go with just the Cream colored corners.
3: Go with the green I was able to find.

I知 at a loss and would like to get this project completed so I can move on to the next. I知 obviously horrible at colors! As always I appreciate everyone痴 help and feedback!

#4 - Purchase the sage green that is in the block? The blocks turned out beautiful I love the way they look up on the wall. In the photo the peachy/terra cotta shade stands out. I think a sage would contrast beautifully.

Remember, it is always a matter of taste, neither right or wrong. That is why the make vanilla and many other flavors of ice cream. My taste would lean to the green.

​The green gives a richness to the blocks in my opinion. A terra cotta fabric for the background would be nice also, pretty blocks!

I like the green, but do you have a piece of black fabric you could try out?

I would go with the green myself because typically I like a nice sharp contrast. But -- I like the print fabric much more than I would expect. It gives a very different look and yes, a lot of your blocks would sort of disappear but it would be cool. Not a fan of the pale.
