Juliann's tea words

I had a chance to get back to my tea cups and tea words work this week. I did the three words so far. I am not happy with the W in the word white but welcome any input you all might have about the backgrounds I have chosen for the cups and the words. Right now the black and white really stick out so I think I need to balance that a bit.

So, ideas?

I love it! Nothing really stood out as a sore thumb... I like the black and white with the mix of others. I think we are our own worst critics.

i agree with carol...i love all of your color choices...and the black and white only help make the other colors "pop" :) keep it up...i love your project!
p.s. i had no trouble reading the word "white", but if the W bothers you, just make looks like youve got the letters down great!

I too like the white---The more wacky the better in my book. I really like how this is all coming together--the cups are great!

I think if you continue to use a variety of background colors you'll be able to make them blend together in the end.

Would it be more trouble than it's worth to just replace that skinny bit of white in your 'W'? That's really the only thing that makes that letter weak.

This is going to be a fun quilt!

I love it, it has a bold look and I think your backgrounds will work out fine! I like your "W", to me it has personality and it works because it is white on black and easy to distinguish as "W" - I think it adds to the character of the quilt.

everyone has pretty much summed up how I feel about this quilt too. I think the W has character. I think the black and white blocks stand out too much - how about if you spread them out some so they're not all grouped together. going great so far.

OK. Another person, another opinion. I think the black and white are fine, it's the blue which stands out to me! It looks great, but needs some more blue elsewhere in the quilt to balance it. Altogether, it fabulous!
