    I need advice on the sunflower lap quilt I plan to make. I made a sample block but can't decide of the green is working with the other colors. Should I keep the green or should I change it for another color such as pale wheat or darker green? I just can't decide.

    I like it the way how it is and wouldn't change a thing. You did a great job choosing the colors!

    First of all ... what an interesting pattern, done with the triangles! I like it!

    It's hard to tell as the pics show different colours. In the first pic, the green looks very dark and the last, it appears brighter. I'm thinking the last is closer to true? Further, the sunflower in the last appears to have two different yellows, which I doubt is correct.

    Also, without knowing where the pattern is going after you get this first block figured out, it's really hard to know what might be best overall.

    From what I can see (and guess), I think the green works well. I think I'd be more apt to change the yellow into something more vivid (same strength of colour as the others you are using) ..... and again, maybe it is, and it's just the way it's showing on my monitor!

    I like this pattern .... and look forward to seeing what it turns into!

    Flowers need those green leaves. Looks VERY good. Love the petals' different tones.

    I think the green really adds to the block. Can you share the pattern?

    Hi everyone, thank you for the input...I'll keep the green. The pattern is from Quilters Cache and it's called Evening Star. It's a free download from the site. Just remember to change the colors...all center triangles are browns...etc. It's a paper pieced pattern. The finished block size is smaller than I would have preferred but I have already printed out all of the pattern pieces so I'll finish it, it will be a lap sized. But, if I ever make this pattern again I'll enlarge the the pattern for a 12" finished block size.
