    Okay. i am in a bit of a stump. I am not sure how I am liking this mix of fabric. I think that I need maybe one more pinky batik to make it look right. or maybe just playing with the fabric placement. Now I did this in paint shop. it is a computer program. Here is a pic of what I am thinking of doing with the fabric. what do you guys think? this is supposed to be the hidden wells pattern. I know that there are points missing. I I don't have the steadiest hand when it comes to drawing a straight line. thanks for your input.

    An uneven number of fabrics always looks best in that pattern. I don't think you need another pinky batik. You need some kind of a zinger though. You might try a different order of strips and see what you get.

    the colors are beautiful, maybe switching the purplish color with the burgundy

    whatever you choose I am sure it will be beautiful

    I'm thinking there is a lot of grey in the colors. Maybe switch out the grayed gold with a brighter yellow to make the purples pop?

    okay here is another alternate of the fabric. I am not sure yet if it is how I like it. You guys are the best at helping me make up my mind.

    same set of fabric just different placement of the burgandy and the lite one.

    I like the most of the first one better. BUT keep the center block where you have it from the second setup.

    I don't know what it is, but there is just something not right about the fabrics. it is either the beige one or the blackish one. I just can't figure it out. or maybe it is the burgundy. I just can't quite put my finger on it. I think that I might need to go let another pinky fq to help balance it out better.

    I think you need to add another dark strip right between the pink and that light batik. It needs to be a narrow strip. I do like this one better.

    I love the second layout. It seems to have a bit more motion / interest. Just my two cents.

    I think that I have found a new toy on the computer for quilting. well at least for some blocks and patterns. hehe was playing with the fabric placement. what do you guys think of this one? It seems to be a little more toned down with the browns and golds and the pinky purples are a little more notice able.

    same fabrics just in different places

    I like the third one best. You need that centered block like in the second and third and in the third the darkest fabric is not so 'in your face'.

    My first choice would be the second one. The second choice would be the third one. Both would be beautiful. I favor the brighter colors.

    second one is great, but I like the first too. I love your choice of fabrics. Sorry, I have not advice on this one.

    Whatever you do, it will be beautiful with those fabrics.
