    Default Opinions Please.....Lime or Lavender

    I making a stacked coin quilt. It will have 5 rows of "coins". Trying to decide on background color...lime green or lavender? I plan to do big stitch quilting on this on....random circles within circles scattered on the quilt possibly using various colors of perle cotton.

    Sooooo lime or lavender? I'm leaning a little more towards one of these...just getting a few more opinions.

    Well, the lime pops more, while the lavender is a touch more feminine. I think it depends on the person you're making it for. Honestly, I like them both. Rereading your post about the big stitch with possibly various colors, I think the lime would lend itself better. More of a Peruvian (?) look.

    I vote for lime! It really makes it pop! The lavender would make a lovely quilt, but I like the vibrancy of the lime.
