    I vote for # 1, #3 is second choice. #2 doesn't have enough contrast, unless you're going for a very subtle look, in which case it might turn out great.

    My vote would be #1 first, #3 second and #2 last. #2 doesn't have enough contrast for me. Very pretty block and fabric choices.

    I vote for #1 (1st choice) and #3 (2nd choice). In 2 it gets lost in the background, u want it to stand out.

    I go for number one, it makes your block stand out a bit more.

    Picture 1 lets it stand out the best. Number 2 it gets lost. Number 3 is ok, not as good as 1. Number 4 is a definite no.

    it really is looking nice, I am the worlds worst at finding the right thing to make it POP. I actually thought the dark blue #1 was to dark till i seen it on it. a few more swes and I will show the final block.

    #1 or #3--the others swallow it and won't give it back.
