    Ufo # 6 background ?

    Okay people! send me your opinions. Dark or light? If I go with the dark it may be dark purple rather than black.

    Ooh this is a tough question, I would like both. In my opinion, the dark background give it a more modern feel. The light background makes me think of vintage quilts. I guess you will just have to make two!

    I almost always go with the dark when the blocks are bright but I think the light really works the best.

    I would usually say dark, but for some reason, I am attracted to the light. Either will be nice.

    I think the light looks better but the dark black or purple would not be bad. I just liked the softer look.

    they stand out more on the dark but I'm not sure that's good. I really like the feel of them on the light.

    I prefer the light with the fabrics you show. But the dark looks good, too. Big help I am.

    I'm going to go against most people here. I WAY prefer the light background fabric! That's such a beautiful quilt-in-progress. Looking forward to hearing your choice.

    They are both very pretty! Normally I would say dark, but in this case I really like the light.

    I like the light best, it seemed my mood changed when I scrolled down from the dark to light. It is soothing.
