Leaf colour

I wasn't sure which green would work best for the leaves, so I cut them out in 2 colours, and laid them both out for comparison. I'll save the unused leaves for another quilt.



The flasjk photos don't show the colours as well as I'd hoped, but I'm now confident that the top option is the way to go - it wasn't my original plan, but I think it looks much better with this colour tree. Any thoughts?

Have you considered using a few different colors to create some depth?

I agree with Margaret. I actually like both colors! Of course that may totally mess up your original design plan.

I like the top ones better, too

I agree the top looks better but not sure why. Maybe the color is warmer and looks better with the warmer colored brown of the trunk and branches.

Yes top colour, or maybe both as already suggested. I love the birds, a its a new twist on your tree quilts!

I like the top leaves too. I find that green is warmer. Beautiful!
