    I need your honest thoughts on the color of this...

    I am horrible with colors... so please be honest. This is called Boxy Stars from Quiltville site. This is lots of fun to make and very easy..even for a less then a year quilter.

    Thanks for any ideas you have....

    I think your colors are fine but the main thing is that you like them!

    I might try this pattern next. It looks like fun. I like reds and pinks, so I give your colors a thumbs up.

    I like the colors together and I like the pattern. Do you like it? That is what is important. The colors are not something I would have chosen, but we all pick what we are draw to.

    I like more contrast, but subtle differences in color can be a good combination too. I think you are doing a lovely job.

    I love it. It's my favorite color!

    Really it's a two-color quilt--red and white. And that's a classic.

    If you feel unsure with color, this is a good way to start. Choose 2 or 3 colors that you love together, and limit yourself to them. Just see if you like the way they look together. Your eyes will know. Your brain doesn't need to get too involved.

    Nice job with good contrast. I've made several boxy stars, a really neat pattern.
