blue?

what do you think? do you like the blue? would it look better all orange with blue binding?

I'm pretty sure I like it (mostly because i don't want to redo my setting blocks), but this is going to be a large quilt, bigger than I normally make...I really want to get it right.I showed it to my husband and I got a mediocre response out of him, so now I'm having second thoughts.

  1. Hi there!

    I've never designed a quilt top (although I've hand quilted some), so my opinion may not carry much weight . . .

    . . . I really like the blue and orange together. I guess I prefer contrast to monochromatic.

    Good luck with your decision!

  3. You know, all orange would be really cute, but I happen to really like the blue with it. I think, at this point, it's personal preference. Do you feel like redoing orange setting blocks? Cause, really, the blue is darling.

  5. I love the blue! It gives the quilt a "happy" feeling when you look at it! Besides, I am Florida gator fan at heart (orange & blue are their school colors)!

    I recently found your blog and I am completely drawn to it! Your colors drew me in and made me want to take everything!

    Thanks for sharing!

  10. i love it! (i'm super into orange and bright/aqua blues lately) however, if you did do it all orange with blue binding it would look super good too. hard decision.

  11. I really really love it the way it is with the orange and blue. I think it gives the stars a chance to really shine.

  14. it seems that you have the extremes of warm and cool, so maybe a warm tone setting blocks would work better?

    You could always make another mini quilt out of the blue setting blocks!

  15. Hi,

    I found your blog through a link on Crazy Mom Quilts. If it isn’t too late to have an opinion on the blue setting blocks here is my two cents; I would never have thought to combine blue and orange but I really like how the colors work together. Once the machine quilted is done I think this is really going to be incredible.

  16. I love this quilt. I just found your blog and I love it. I am working on a purple and white quilt now but after seeing all your quilts I wish it was white with bright colors.

  17. I wonder what you did with this? I'm partial to the colour combo because this is what we have in our living/dining room.

  18. I love the blue & orange. It's just lovely... likely just not hubby's thing! I'm with the majority - you should keep it just the way it is. It is such a cheerful quilt top!
