    It was a rainy day yesterday and I got busy sewing. I did not have enough of white background fabric for centers so I used yellow.
    this quilt will get wide border with applique flowers around. I know that by using yellow I will have a hard time picking fabric for the border.
    Then I found some leftover white fabric and now I like the squares better with it. What do I do? do I take it all apart and replace the yellow center squares with white? it will make so much easier to do the border or do I stay with the yellow centers?

    I know that not everybody likes yellow.. so the quilt with yellow center might not be well received......
    any thoughts would be appreciated
    thanks

    Did you think of mixing the two? I think they both are very pretty. Great job.

    I like the yellow, it really brightens it up. MrsM said both and that just might be it!

    Can I admit, I rather like the yellow one...but both are of course very nice. But I like the yellow...it draws my eye.

    I like the yellow better. It's so lovely and bright. Maybe it depends on the person getting it?
