Squares for the "Rain or Shine" Quilt

This is what I did with my evening:


I need ya'lls feedback. Do these groups look balanced? Each block uses 4 prints and all the blocks are the same design, but you're supposed to use 4 different fabric groupings to liven things up. I tried to get a good mix of purple/yellow, small print/large print, geometric/organic in each group, but I need some fresh eyes (plus I had to stop working on it because The Mentalist came on). Thanks in advance :)

  1. i LOVE this! the colours are great, and i think it's a great balance. the only thing i can think of, and it's nothing major, is that there isn't a yellow solid (and 2 purple solid), not sure if that's something you want to play around with. but seriously, this is looking great! also, i love the mentalist too! but i usually pvr it and watch it later =P was it a good one today??

  5. My favorite groups are those on the left. My least favorite is bottom right cos I think it needs a plain to balance out the large prints. Perhaps take the yellow from bottom left and swap it with yellow bottom right??/ Hope this doesn't sound too critical. The fabrics and colors are lovely!

  8. I think the groups look great - LOVE the fabrics and can't wait to see this when it's done! The only thing that caught my eye is the bottom right group, it doesn't have a dark fabric.

  10. I love your selections. The solids throw me off a bit, but I think they will be great once the quilt is put together. I love the variety!

  11. These are lovely! I think (when squinting which is how I check contrast) that the bottom right might need one that's darker?
