Two Colour Challenge

I know I promised to decide on my pattern by yesterday but obviously that didn't happen. I am going to try a triple Irish chain.
Here are a few of the blocks. I wouldn't put these specific ones next to each other because I made them using strip piecing so are too similar but at opposite ends of the quilt I don't think it will be too noticeable.



So my cyber friends, do you think the chain will be obvious enough? Or are my blues blending too much into the neutrals? DH think so but I think it might be ok still. My neutrals are not horribly neutral and I wish I had a lot more of them, but I'm trying to stash bust/diet a little right now.

It going to be a stunning quilt. I love the blues and white..and I think it will be very pretty when it's done. I've made a double Irish Chain in those colours and it's my favourite quilt.
Thanks for popping by on my blog and saying hello...I'll be sure to add you to my google reader so I can keep tabs on your progress. :o)

I think the blues stand out just fine. It will be beautiful.

Once you get more blocks done you will be able to see the chain just fine. It is subtle, but very soothing and pretty!

I think it's perfect. The softness of the blues is very comforting--and lovely.

I love the subtleness of the blues. I'm going to pales blues and creams myself. And uhhh I guess I better get my fabric cut out for the challenge. I am so doomed....
