Opinions Needed

First, a caveat: This house is NOT a part of the Housing Project Quilt. It's for something else.

Usually when I design houses I make all my fabric choices before I start sewing. This time, I was a little overeager and started sewing before I made my decision about the roof of this house, and I'm in a bit of a quandary.

So I need your help. I've numbered the possibilities, and I'd like to know which one you think would work best. The whole "vibe" for this quilt is the warm reds with cool greens and turquoises. The other fabric choices surround the house, and may not all be used.

Please let me know your thoughts in the comments.

This blue green is Option One.
This pale cream is Option Two.
This dark brown with blue flowers is Option Three.
These light brown swirls are Option Four.
These little brown boxes are Option Five.
This soft cream is Option Six.
Currently my favorites are Option Three and Option One.

If you look closely, you will see that I have covered up a couple of windows. This is deliberate, and will be a surprise for X.

(And X, I am particularly interested in your opinion!)


PS, the door -stays- blue!

Brenda said...

any of the dark ones. the cream ones just let the house float away.

joulesB said...

#1 for me

Susan said...

I like any of the darker fabrics, but am leaning towards option 1.

Deb C. said...

I agree with you, though option 1 is my personal favorite. Great blocks.

Jen said...

Number 3 is my favorite, but I also like number 1.

3anklebiters said...

option 1 is best, the lighter colors don't look very roofish on this house. i'm anxious to see what is in your windows!

Liz said...

Option #1 but make the door a different color fabric.

Hedgehog said...

I like one and three, too. :)

Anita in Florida said...

Hand down I like option 3!

Gina said...

I like no 1 and 3. If I had to be pinned down to a choice I think I would go with 1. I think the print on no3 might just be bit too large

Love and hugs Gina xxx

apla said...

Number 1 is my favorite

Deborah said...

1 and 5 :)

lesthook said...

One and three!

pwl said...

I agree with your choices - but Option 3 would be my first preference of the 2. :)

Love 2 Quilt said...

My favorite is 3 because it goes good with the blue door. It adds sparkle.

carolyn said...

I like option #3...it's dark enough to show off the house and the fabric adds some texture and dimension. Throw all the light brown roofs out...not good.

Cherie said...

I love option 3!

Quilt Monkey said...

Number One is my pick! So fun to watch your houses develop!!

Feedsack Fantasy said...

Hmmm! 1 & 3. TTFN ~ Marydon

Sara said...

My first choice was Number 1...I do like no. 3 too...

Kyra said...

I vote for option 3! Thinking it needs a darker roof.

Anonymous said...

#1 by far.

Callie said...

Well, I don't really like any of these choices, but one and three seem to work the best except (to me) their tonal values are too similar to the red to make an exciting contrast. I will vote for three because of the design adding more contrast. Neat house!

JVC_Scout_Mom said...

Number 1 the blue/green

Sharon said...

My first choice is #3 and 2nd choice is #1.

jan said...

#3 and then #1

stitchinpenny said...

The best choice for me would be 3. All the beige or brown roofs bring down the joyous red of the house in my mind's eye. It just has to be 3.

spyderlady said...

I like #1.

Vicky F said...

I like number one best.

GARI said...

I like #1.

Derby said...

one or three!

BUMBLE BEANS said...

The darks seem to read the best, in my view..
I like number one, which I think is one you liked as well. go with your gut.

Camie's Kitties said...

My favorite is #1, second choice is #3.

It is number one, hand down for me! Option 3 has great potential also, but all the rest need to be put away, they contribute zero. I love that you asked everyone, that is fun, just like you!

Karen said...

I like option 5 the best.

Tina said...

I like the third option the best.
