Drats and double drats..........

Drat it.....I really hate when I come to a point in working a quilt block that I'm stuck and don't know what to do. Am actually working on my May contest block early for a change because I need it finished early instead of at the last minute.

But the colors are giving me fits at the moment..... The pic here shows what I've improv-pieced for the background of the block. I was going to shade to a super light blue in the bottom right corner.....but guess what I don't have.

So the options that I can see at the moment is (1) to shift everything down towards the bottom right corner and then bring in a different color up at the top left of the block (purple?) or (2) bring in the tan background color at the bottom left and leave everything else as it is.........

The tan will also be in there as an appliqued 'qtr circle on the solid color blocks. What do you guys think?


Gratitudes:
1. Even tho my platelets dropped this week, they didn't drop below what they were two weeks ago...dare I hope they are starting to stabilize?

2. Beautiful spring weather is here. =)

Since you have such a dark blue at the top, why not balance it with white at the bottom? Or the tan could work, too.
