This is the result of my New Year's Day mystery sewing. The quilt will be for my godson't baby girl who is due around Easter. I was looking for a vintage Easter Egg look. Should I use the yellow or the lavendar for a background? I also posted this on facebook in hopes the new mama will weigh in. She doesn't know it is for her.

Wow! Are they the same blocks in both pictures? They look completely different!

The lavender is a softer colour for the background and makes the yellows in the blocks pop. I would probably go for that  I think

50/50 on FB so far. Granny-to-be suggested robin's egg blue so we have a third choice.

opinion? I personally like the lavender then the blue. Which are you leaning towards? Go with what your eye tells you. I've seen pictures of quite a few of your quilts and they're always beautiful! Can't wait to see it completed. What will you be using for the back?

I like the lavender.  It brightens up & brings out the colors in the blocks - yellow, purples, peaches.  The robin egg blue brings out some of the colors, but not as much as the lavender.  Though am wondering if rather than a robin egg blue, how a light periwinkle blue would work.  It is a blue with some lavender/purple undertones.   Maybe the combo of both would play well with all the colors in your blocks?

Alas, I don't have periwinkle in my stash. But the blue does seem on the edge of teal. The designer weighed in in favor of the blue. Grandma has the same reason for her blue as comments here.. it brigs out the yellows. She suggests binding in lavender. Granny is a musician, but an artist s an artist.
