    Which do you like best?

    I worked this up in EQ7 last night to use a JR and FQ set of Moda Marbles Warm with a JR and yardarge of Bella Solids Cream background. Which looks best, the colored center stars or the cream centers (sounds like a cookie)?

    I actually have enough to make both. I got two JRs of the Warm and 2 JRs of the Cream just because it was 4 for $100 and I thought they would make some nice, country-style quilts.

    I've been thinking of getting a stock of basic quilts done for when I retire in 4 years. This has a very simple, classic look and the Marbles Warm are country colors but in a sophisticated darker palette, in my opinion, that could appeal to different tastes.

    The first one seems to catch my eye. The stars stand out and don't fall into the rest of the quilt.

    They are both great! The first one - the colored centers make the stars stand out a bit more. In the second one, with the cream centers, it is more serene and the secondary pattern of the double nine patch blocks can come out and play as well.

    I'd have a hard time choosing between the two.

    Cheers, K
