    Okay, I need your opinion please. I made this Dresden Plate and not sure which color the center should be. My husband likes the green, I lean more to the brown.

    I like the brown. It is more dramatic.

    I like the brown too, but if there are going to be multiple blocks I'd mix it up and use them both.

    I agree with mixing them up and using both but if not, go with the brown!

    I am having a hard time deciding. The green kind of softens the whole thing a bit more. But the brown really looks good. I don't think you can go wrong with either one.
    Flip a coin if in doubt.

    Both are nice, but I personally like the green better, since I see all the lovely patterns and colors. With the brown, it definitely "Pops", but then that is all I see, the other nice fabrics disappear.

    I do like the brown the best. I saw one once that used a layered center, one color larger than the other, was really pretty.

    I like the green - it makes the plate look scrappier

    I think the green is softer (more traditional) and the brown is more modern. Have you thought about the look you want? I personally like the green.
