    I'm making this little quilt (center 14x15) and I realize I've been taking some chances. The magenta is pretty wild. I've put on the top and bottom final borders - I guess I'm just scared to try to match the side ones. Before I do that - your opinions please. Is this just too much?

    Not if you like the color. I think they look good together.

    I think it's perfect. Anything else would be passe and expected. This makes you look.

    Just looked at the picture again. Nobody noticed that I don't have the strips in the right order? Oh shoot.... Guess I'd better try again. But thanks for the OK on the colors and pattern. This is making me crazy! Little project - just whip it off and do it. No, not really. Or - just maybe - it doesn't matter!

    Maybe add a dark blue or navy next to the magenta. Just an idea. Looks good.

    I really like the colors as well, and I never noticed the one that was out of line until I went back and looked after you pointed it out. Good job.

    I agree that a small blue border with the magenta would be good.

    And I realized that the reason there is such a cool wave to the blues - is BECAUSE one of the strips is out of whack. Woo hoo! Talk about taking chances! NOW it's the way I intended it to be. Thanks again!
