I tried to take a pic of all the blocks I have done but they are so colorful, I can't size them small enough to post without having them go all blurry. DH said to just post one block, so here tis......

I think it's really too too busy and it hurts my head to look at all of them at once. I think I'm going to use a lime green for sashing and black for a cornerstone. At least that's the plan for now.

I love it... Great colours.. But maybe as you say Sharon a whole quilt in this fabric may look a bit busy.. :-)

Sharon, I think that looks great. I think once you put the sashing around the blocks, it will tone them down because I thought the same thing about my blocks when I first started them and once the sashing was on, I was pleased with the results.

I'm going to have to wait to see what this looks like when I get it all together. A gal from Tinidad ordered a 'flowery' quilt and she loves color! Not sure if this will work or not, but will see when I get it done. She does like 'loud' though.

I love the colors, brights are my thing, but a solid quilt of those blocks may get a bit busy. How about alternating the floral blocks with a solid or a 9-patch. That would tone it down a bit.

I have the quilt top done and have a pic taken....DH isn't in here to help me hang it higher so I think I'll wait to post a pic of it til I can get a pic of the whole thing. It turned out ok....I used yellow sashing with lime green cornerstones. Next is a small black border then the last border is pink.
