    I really love the sharp contrast of the two colors put together. I wonder at times too but wait until the whole quilt is put together as this is when everything balances out.

    Great contrast in the fabrics, and the darker one is very pretty!

    I really like the strong contrast. It lets you see the Greek Key design very well. I bet it's going to look awesome all put together!

    hate to go against the current (actually, I love going against the current). In this case, I think the contrast is too strong. But that's me.

    I think you have to ask yourself: will you really like it when it's done. What one person loves, another may not be satisfied with at all.

    I agree with jillaine - but quilted feathers in the light space could make all the difference. The colored fabric is beautiful.

    I really like it. But I wouldn't join all the blocks till you're done. You may want to play around with it and end up with an underlaying second design by laying out the blocks differently. That's one of the things I love about quilting! Great job!

    I think your fabric choice is very nice. My vote is to keep going but if you don't like it then you need to do something different. You'll never be happy with it.

    I agree, sometimes it takes the completed top to really see how the colors come together. There is a gorgeous dark in the focus fabric that would be a great color to pull out for part of a border. Oooohhh! I can't wait to see this when it is done. Don't worry about the colors yet - just keep going and it will all come together (beautifully from the looks of your photo!)
