    Help me decide!

    I've been working on this quilt for several weeks trying to make it work for me. I am now down to the light colored fabric. Which do you like best, the beige fabric or the beige with the small green leaves?

    I am open to any input/suggestions on anything else as this is my first 'freehand' quilt (not a kit)!

    My eye was immediately drawn to the beige with the small leaves. Pretty.

    I like it best without the leaves. The one with the leaves seem to hide the star pattern to me. The one without the leaves lets the star pop. IMO

    Ditto on the small green leaves. It is going to be very, very pretty.

    I vote for the plain beige. The green leaves make the pattern hard to see.

    I like the tan with the leaves... I love how everyone "sees" things differently, and all the help we all really do get from here, even when the votes are close...

    I vote for the plain beige, no leaves, can see the star pattern easier. It is very pretty.

    I too agree! The little green leaves, by the way, I really love the little strip of red that I see!

    I like the little green leaves, too, but how about them with the black star and the solid beige with the floral star blocks.

    So, with all of the voting, are you totally confused now? Right back to where you started - plain or w/green leaves! I think it's pretty evenly divided. I vote for the green leaves too.
