Design Wall . . HELP!

I am easily distracted.... I alluded to that fact in my last post. I had good intentions. I want to organize and clean up my sewing room so I can have others over. I've had a few friends and family express interest in learning to quilt, plus I like to quill (rolled paper crafts) and have hopes I can entice a couple other friends to join me in returning to that craft.

In one pile I found a zip bag with the blocks recently won at a guild BOM. I use the term blocks loosely. There were 8 finished blocks and kits to make 19 more. So here's my logic...... 'The cutting is all done. Why don't you just whip up the remaining blocks?'  So I did... except it was bit longer process than a whip. What I learned.... even though they were kitted, still check the measurements. Sigh.... They are done and all measure within a 1/4 inch of each other.

Here's where I need your help. I wanted an alternate block that I could tweak to fit the BOM blocks (cut a little bit off and not loose points/elements) and really like the one I found but.... I can't decide on the background fabric. Both fabrics are from my stash and there is enough of each to finish the quilt. I like the look of the carmel colored one person and the lighter one in the photo. Helllllllllp. TIA

 Check out what others are working on over at Judy's Patchwork Times.

I am leaning towards the camel color background, it seems to blend a lot better. The blocks look great!

I agree with Kari. The camel is more restful looking. the tow blocks will look great together.

Hi Karen!
Think I like the lighter color best too. What you've found for the alternate block is perfect. Are these a win from Sunshine? I don't remember them. Seems to me that participation was at an all time low if you got mostly kits....Sandi
