This block represents two of the three fabrics I'm using. The third fabric will be darker and provide much needed contrast. Is this too crazy looking??

Up close it looks pretty busy, but when you back off the design shows nicely.

I love the fabrics, in fact I have one of them!
Do you have a picture of these with the darker fabric? Try all of them to see if you like the more homogenous look, or if you want more contrast.
Either way it is very pretty as it is.

Here's the first block finished and the second block with the darker fabric. Now I'm thinking that maybe I should do all the blocks with the darker + one of the lighter and not mix the two lighter fabrics.

With darker fabric

The two next to each other

LOL That dark fabric was my choir uniform in the late 80's. I hate it! LOL Imagine a sea of about 30 girls all wearing that fabric with faux lace collars. Bleh! But I can laugh about it now. All of these fabrics were used by my mom to sew dresses for me, my sister or for herself. I'm making them into a lap blanket for her for Christmas.

I am a total newbie, but to put in my two cents, I think the two lighter fabrics are too close in tone. . . you need a little more ooommph! Does that make any sense?

I'd use a solid color in there, pink or purple; to set it off better.

My true opinion. The lighter fabric is too close in color and makes it hard to see any contrast in the block. The dark with allows your see what is there without having to search for a difference in the colors. In other words the first is so so and the second one is yeah now there we go. Does that make any sense.
