    Ok guys I need your opinions. Does this brighter green look good with these blocks or does the other green look better. My only problem is the second green I only have 1/2 yard of it so could only put strips inbetween and not on the outside. Or should I look for another color all together. I was hoping to use what I had tho.

    Sorry I could not seem to get good lighting on the pictures....

    First one, brighter green

    either one is fine but I would go with the one that you have the most of and frame it too. Good luck.

    I think they both look good enough to use some of each

    I prefer the first choice, the 2nd one looks a little plain to me.

    I like the brighter green. It gives the quilt more interest.

    I like the brighter green in the first picture. It really makes the pink really stand out! :)
