Default Carpenter's Wheel finished

All together, I am not happy with the color choices. The reason for this quilt was to use the floral fabric, which I did not use enough of, in this quilt. I am not happy with the bright yellow, mostly, the white border......... but it is done,not sure if when I will be able or want to quilt it. Maybe I need time to get used to it or it might go to UFO pile, or will auction it?

thank you again, to you all

I just might remove the white border someday

I think it is very pretty and I would for sure finish it up. Quilt it up and donate to a place that would appreciate it.
You could always do another using different colors.

I will help you solve your disappointment with your quilt. Just pack it up and send to me. I think it is great and see nothing wrong with colors I often feel the same way on a quilt I have spent a long time on and for some reason it looses it luster.

I think you could have put more floral in it. But it still is a very nice quilt. Don't like it? Donate it or sell it.

That is very pretty, the white makes it sparkle, I think once it's quilted you will love it. I can see some beautiful quilting in those large areas.

I don't see bright yellow; maybe the photo. The colors all seem to go together; don't be so hard on yourself - we all do it ! Happy Quilting !
