    Default Hmm, decisions decisions

    I'm just at home for lunch and thought I'd play around with my Falling Charms quilt design.

    Here's what I have so far.

    Now it's going to be much wider then this but I'm wondering if I should stick to one color in the falling part. I have white, green, pink and blue.

    There's a variety of blocks in the picture but those are the colors.

    Let me know what you think.

    It looks great. The white is falling block is hard to see in the pic with the background. The colors are pretty
    Thank you,

    I think it looks great except for the almost white ones that don't show up very well. Those don't have enough contrast to the white background.

    I like the variety. I'm not sure about the last block in place, the one with the very pale blue(?) it almost fades into the white.

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

    I like the arrangement. That's very pretty and I love the Sakura Park fabrics. That packet has 3 very light blocks, blue, pink, and a green. I think I'd replace those very light ones with others or perhaps something from your stash that will work. The very pale ones seem to get lost in the background fabric. I like your background fabric too. I wish I could find a nice white like that.

    Hmm, that's a thought, removing the white background prints out altogether. They do look quite lost in there don't they.

    I like the mixed up look, yes, and the white/ light ones get overpowered by the colored ones. What charm pack is this?

    Oh, I see, Sakura Park, I have that in jelly roll form.

    I think I would leave out those white blocks. They don't show up very well against the white background. I love the colors you chose. Very pretty!
