Either Or

I really like this arrangement of the colored words. It is reminiscent of a sunset. (It's the same one that is on the wall in this post.)

I'm not sure about the two lightest words - CHAMPAGNE and GOLDENROD. I'm a little worried they may look like a "hole" in the middle of the quilt. There's not much I can do about CHAMPAGNE anyway. It's color value is very close to the background, and photos just make it look worse. It's not going away, so as Tim Gunn says, I have to "Make it work!"

So I played with my paper strips, and tried looking at the colors in a light-to-dark arrangement. (and actually I worked it out before Davenandlo suggested it.)

It is a distinct possibility. I have to try it with the real strips, but I have been busy adding the binding and hanging sleeve to the Quick Brown Fox.

Of course, Millie has been helping.

I prefer the light to dark arrangement. If you find the lights too light maybe you could accent them with the quilting somehow. On my monitor they look fine.

I love your arrangement of words. the colors are great. You are just too too smart, course I am prejudiced. Jeanne

There is no way that something as cool as this collection of words could go wrong. I say, put the words in a hat, pick them out one at a time, and let the quilt fates decide the order.

looks fantastic - the fonts for champagne and chocolate are marvelous!
