    More advice needed...too dark?

    Hi all. I started this fence rail, 9 patch quilt for my great nephew. I'm using celestial by In the beginning as my fabrics. I bought a half yard bundle, so I have a lot of fabrics to choose from. I'm using black background fabric for the nine patches. My question is, is this coming out to dark? Should I switch my background fabric to something lighter? Or should I dare to use the black with the stars? Or go really bold and add suns and moons in the back ground squares.
    My great nephew is 13. All opinions welcome, even if it hurts

        I kind of like the moons and stars. But to your first question it's not too dark.

          Honestly I think it looks handsome just the way it is. I wouldn't change.

            No, it's not to dark......I wouldn't do the moon and star's, only because, if you don't, he will enjoy it longer. ( just my opinion ).
            You can use the yellow or blue, to bind or frame it to pull out brighter colors.

                        I think it looks great! It is hard sometime to find a pattern and fabric for a guy and you did a fantastic job.

                        Before you speak,
                        T - is it TRUE?
                        H - is it HELPFUL?
                        I - is it INSPIRING?
                        N - is it NECESSARY?
                        K - is it KIND?

                          Not at all too dark the black actually pops your other colors.
                          If you could choose to be anything choose kindness.

                            Looks good to me. I like the moon and stars! Not too dark guys like dark quilts, and he can lay on the bed with his shoes on, cause you know he will!
