    Ready to put the leaves on now! The pattern uses 2 colors, one for in the sky and one for in the grass.

    I have 2 choices for each and both look good, but I'm wondering about the "plains" being better because they don't take away from the wonderful colors of the flowers. Or should I go with the "brights" for the leaves as well?

    I like the brights, but it is hard to tell without seeing the effect it has on the bigger quilt.

    A bigger picture... If I get any farther away, it really doesn't matter at all! And I guess that really answers the whole question!

    Thanks friends! There is to be one light green to go on the sky area and one medium green to go on the grass area. One of the sky ones is bright and the other is more plain, same with the two grass ones. So I'm wondering to go with the brights for sky and grass or plains for sky and grass. Sorry if I didn't explain it well!

    I like the brights. You're doing a fantastic job. Is this the quilt on the June Quilters World? I admired that quilt but am not in a position to make it right now.

    I think you've made up your mind on what ones to use. I do like the idea of using all the green batiks. I'm looking forward to seeing more.

    I vote for all, too. Look at a plant, the leaves get lighter as the plant gets taller.
