    Default Opinion Please....On Current Project

    I'm working on another color wash quilt but in a beach layout. I'm trying to decide which looks better....two rows of dark rectangles at the top of horizon or three rows? Also does the darkest color look better in a straight line like the 3rd picture shows or mixed fabric colors like the 1st two pictures.

    The sky is still a work in progress....not happy with it yet....just playing with colors in these pictures but the sky layout will go almost up to the ceiling. Nothing is sewn together yet.

    So what do y'all think?

    I'miss the odd ball out. I like the 3rd one best. Makes me think of a storm brewing. Kinda like the one outside my window right now.

    Absolutely wonderful quilt theme! No doubt this is your view of the Gulf of Mexico. The horizon is usually a very thin dark line, with the sky above (view 2) so I am in favor of one or possibly two rows of dark rectangles at the top. This said, you might graduate the colors, darker to darkest as you near the horizon.

    This is beautiful. Congratulations on such a beautiful look. I think I might go with view 3. I might even go with just one row. The thin dark line being the horizon. Once the sky is built I think that would be beautiful. That said, I really like view 1 best right now as is so I am sure whatever you decide will be right.

    this is beautiful, the dark blue in second picture looks like an underside of a wave, with sun peeping over, amazing.
