I realize that I am in the minority here, But I can see the color choice being questioned. Not that they don't look good together, but the WAY they are arranged feels strange to me. Let me see if I can explain why it feels strange. I have OCD tendencies and small things that most would not notice, make me obsessive and I itch to "fix them" to fit my perception of what they should be. I actually want to reach into the picture you shared and rearrange the peices to fit my expectations, nerocies whatever. :aww:
For example, I would not have had a white center on the dark "flower" I would have used the light purple, so that the flowers were negative images of each other. I also would have made all the peices not in a "flower" the same color, All white or all brown, omiting 1 color completely.
The fact that the background is 2 different colors, but not the same number of peices for each background color bothers me. I keep focusing on counting the background peices (6 white, 12 brown), thinking they will magically change if I count them enough:roflhard: , instead of focusing on the bigger picture of the beauty of the peice as a whole.
HOWEVER, that being said, this is a great blanket that you obviousely worked very hard on and should take great pride in its completion. :yay: But most importantly, as long as the overall design makes YOU happy, that is all that matters. The judge that questioned the colors, may have a few OCD tendencies himself or might just not like purple. :shrug:
