    Attached is a photo of some fabric that I'm thinking of making into a D9P for a baby. Blocks will originally be cut at 4"sq.

    What do you think?? Is the tan too brown? Too boring? (The baby will be a little boy....)

    Love the tan! It flows with the baseball color.

    I like the tan, too. I think it will keep the other colors from blending into each other.

    Seems like the tan kind of balances everything together. I have to say I like it.

    Yep! I like that tan .... now, I have a question (not having read all the previous responses, so apologies in advance if I am duplicating someone else's question)
    When you are making the beginning nine patch, is it going to matter where the tan shows up? I mean can you put it in the corners and center all of the time, or does it look different if you always put the tan in the noon, three, six, and nine positions?

    See and I am not fond of the tan but don't put tan in a lot of what i do, I would probably find a green to match the diamonds. Or i would do two different blocks, i would put a blue with the red and a red with the blue. But that is just me.

    The tans seem to be very popular for baby blankets & clothes these days, from what I've seen. I knit hooded zip up the back baby sweaters & all the young moms seem to want the tans and earthy colours (I always tend to look for the pastel yarns). It will look great

    I don't normally like tan very much, but for this I love it. It just fits well.

    Also, I agree with Susy that the tans are popular now.

    I like the tan to off set the blue and red which are strong colors

    I agree!
    I am tending to use the tan for more background than stark white ... it makes the colors pop in a rich way ... and, if I can find a wood grain with that tan, I am really happy! The quilt looks exciting with those three fabrics.
    I think if another color got added, it would look really dark and broody ..
    This is going to be so fun getting done!

    I think the tan works! Kind of like a leather glove to go with the baseball fabric!

    I agree with the tan - it's not a colour to 'shine' on it's own but it's great for setting off other colours. And as Debbie says, it's the colour of a baseball mitt! LOL

    I think the tan looks great! Sort of mimicks the infield as well as a mitt!

    That was my thought, Angie. Looks like the infield of the baseball diamond. I would use it.

    Thanks everyone for your input.

    Showed the fabric to my daughter and she said, "Mom, that tan fabric looks just like dirt!" :lol: :lol: :lol:

    Am getting it all washed up and ready to go today.
