I finished all the blocks for this quilt a couple of days ago and I'm considering taking out all the blocks with turquoise out (16 of them - a quarter of the quilt). I just don't know. Normally I like to have a little bit of "pop" in quilts, but I'm afraid that the turquoise is more of a jarring contrast in this one.
Please let me know what you think. Hopefully the pictures shown side by side will help. If I do replace them, I'll have to make more purple blocks because all the ones with turquoise were blocks that had purple in them (my daugher's favorite color) - rats! I'd also have to go buy more purple batiks. I really don't want to have to do that. *sigh*
I wonder if I could find an outer border batik fabric that is mostly purple with some turquoise in it if it would make the turquoise fit in more? I'm sooooo confused!
