I think I have been wrong all along

I have always said that if you add enough colors the quilt will come out all right. But somehow this top has missed the mark. Maybe I used too many colors, maybe not enough. Perhaps the colors are too bland or maybe the fabrics too busy. It could be that there is not enough difference between the light and the darks. Whatever the problem, I think this top is just too dull and boring. This top is headed for the Heartsting project anyway.

I think the next top I make will be for a juvenile and I will use only loud bright colors.

I don't know Barbara, but I like it. Maybe I'm just dull! LOL. I believe it looks wonderful.

I think it looks fine too Barbara, It's not just as vibrant as some with all the light strips. I know someone will love wrapping up in it!

I like it! Cool pattern!

I like it. Have you considered adding a blue or yellow border? That might spark it up a bit so that you like it better.

I had the same thoughts as Vicki. I like the top too, soothing, but I would consider a bright yellow/gold border and a blue. I'm sure someone will like it, as we all have our own preferences.

I think it will be a great quilt - especially if you decide to border it with a bright color. That will pick up a particular color from the center and unify it a bit. It really is a great quilt!

I like all of the colors and such, and I agree: punch up the outer border.

Side note: a cold person would not notice the colors as much as the warmth.
