    Default How do these colors look ?

    Hello Ladies

    Not sure if this question belongs here or in another section ... but I sure could use some 'professional' opinions.

    I have these fabrics and am desperate for a project ~~ I'm in limbo trying to save to afford the walking foot for my Bernina to finish Jenny's blue & white orange peel quilt

    They are 10" squares and some leftover binding strips and the small white squares are going to be good quality unbleached muslin.

    I think they look good together, but since you asked..I would take out the solid blue one. It is the right shade of blue but is the only one that is not a print, so to me it kind of sticks out.

    I like it, but there is not much contrast, which is not a bad thing if you are going for a calming effect. If you want a bit more 'pop', I would add some more of the blues and/or use darker sashing... ORRRRR..... use the blue for your sashing and the browns for your blocks...

    I like the colors together, just not sure the balance is quite right......do you have more blue to add to make it more balanced?
