you want an honest opinion, at least for me, i love them... theres nothing wrong with subtle colors, i think it has a very sofisticated look which certainly goes with the complexity of the pattern itself, it'd look great in my bedroom :)

Thank you. I was concerned that the subtle differences of the fabrics would be lost. And in a large piece I think they would be. Using these as the darkest part of a quilt ahd brancing off across or surrounding these with lgraduated lighter colors wil probably look great, and I'm thinking that's what I'll do. I like them too much to scrap them. And I knew when I bought the fabric two years ago (1/2 yd each) I'd use them together, and I had stars in mind, so when Dream Weaver came into my life I knew exactly what fabrics I'd use to start..

I like the effect in c, where the darker part of the fabric falls in the centre and there's some contrast to make the points visible.

Thank you for your comments. C is my favorite combination too. I'm not much for pinks and I love the tiny play of pinks, green and blues in this piece. Oddly this was the first block I sewed for this project.

I reviewed all your projects and you certainly are prolific. And color is your specialty, I think. That said, I like this one a lot. And it's different. Very subtle changes,not sure if I like A or B best. Maybe you could use it as a table runner for a few days to really get a handle on it. The only other thought I have is that you seem to have doubts and that is always a red flag. This should make YOU happy. It's a big project. Also, youm ust have to work in daylight to avoid blindness, right? I think it's beautiful. I am so anxious to start Peggy's class. I watched the videos off and on, but just cannot devote the time right now. Keep us posted on your decision!

Thanks for your comments. Actually I work mostly at night after I'm home from work.It helps me relax from the day's issues. Sunday afternoons are also spent quilting when possible. My doubts are because of the subtle blending of the fabrics. I'm considering making one quilt that combines the Dream Weaver blocks and a few Saliors Delight blocks. Color I'll probably graduate the color scheme from lights to darks across the quilt, I seem to really like doing that to get variety. Definately will keep everyone posted on the final results.

Oops. I made my decision based on the three together (dwgs), going left to right as A, B, C. When I looked at the individual pics, I definitely love C. Just gorgeous in person, I bet. But putting them all together in the same quilt would be charming and different. I vote for C

Oooo - which to choose, which to choose. They're all gorgeous! I think C would make a great focal point, Then make another A and another B to spread out toward (or as) the corners and reflect with punch. Thanks for asking for input. Very nice of you!
