Thank you all for your suggestions.  I think I will look for a blue to go with the pink.  I don't care much for yellow.  I'll take the blocks & fabric to my LQS to see what they have.  They are always so helpful (just like you all!  

I'm doing 4 BOM's and trying to finish quite a few UFOs   I have about 10 quilt tops that are ready to be quilted, but just can't get motivated to do them so I continue to add to them.

You sound just like me!

And your blocks are just beautiful, So pretty.

I only have 1 block done, but I really like this quilt and so I need to get busy and do more, but it may not happen until the kids are back at school.

My floral fantasy is done, it is going to the quilter this week.   If I can find a camera, I'll get a picture before it goes away.

Floral fantasy is back from the quilter.  

Fonda was pretty funny.  She named the quilt Bune'. (Bun-ay) .     When I took it over I told her it was but ugly, and it was her job to make it spectacular.    Neither of us is a fan of pastels,  I was experimenting  with background,  I got it put together and remembered that I do not like pink.  A little bit of pink is ok,  but an entire pink quilt was a little too much for me.    While quilting it, Fonda broke 10 needles.  Too many seams, my bad.   She e-mailed me and told me But Ugly had a new name Bune',  But Ugly Needle Eater..   Once the quilting was done, we decided it wasn't quite as bad as we thought.   it is still way too pink for me, but a done quilt is a good quilt.

pictures tomorrow.

I can wait to see it, and I don't recall it being anywhere near ugly.

I agree Jacy. While I'm not a fan of pastels or pink, I don't recall Buné being anywhere near ugly.

Ugly, in this case, is in the eye of the beholder.  I is a beautiful quilt!
