    I was asked to do a quilt & this is what I came up with -- not my best. I need your opinion on should I go with the light blue or yellow inner board. Thanks ahead of time.

    light blue for sure - i think the yellow is a little too bright for the tones in the quilt.

    Surprisingly (to me) I think the bright yellow works. I would not have thought to use it there, but it's a good choice. The light blue safe, but bland.

    I like the yellow.It makes the brown stand out much better. I think it looks really nice,maybe you can use the blue with the yellow for an outer boarder the blue softens the eyes.

    I think the light blue is better than the yellow. The yellow pulls the eye to the outside and the blocks themselves are not the focal point. Unless that is what you want.

    Light blue :) feels like it blends better, not so harsh.

    I'm a yellow fan but I think the blue would look best. Or even a medium grey. :thumbup:

    Light blue, I personally think the yellow clashes with the gold.
    Have a great 4th.

    I have to say I like pop but I would go to a brown to tie in to the horses. It surprises me that I am even saying this.

    The light blue "should" work for this quilt but my eyes keep going to the yellow. I think because it is more dramatic.
    I would go with the yellow.
