Fabric Choice Assistance Requested

I'm planning to do a SAL that starts in January on Stitcher's Showcase.  We will be stitching the freebie 'A Bouquet For Cheryl' that was designed by Marc Davis, Diane Jourdan, and Kat Zak in memory of a stitcher--Cheryl Miller, who passed away a couple years ago.

No problem picking my floss--'Lumiere de Cheryl' by Carrie's Creation.  My problem is making a final decision on my fabric.  I'm down to two choices.  A Silkweaver Solo 28 ct Jobelan (it's a very light lavender):

Second choice is called "Ray of Light" - it is a 28 ct. Lugana (pale lemon yellow):



Unfortunately, neither of these photos shows the true color of the fabrics!  Drat it!  But, I'd love to get your comments on which one you like best:

1. Solo - lavender
2. Ray of Light - light yellow

My DH says 'Ray of Light'; that's almost enough to make me pick the lavender just on general principles!

Thanks much.

Happy Stitching!

Vicki in CO

I vote for 1. Solo - lavendar

I stitched that a couple of years ago and really enjoyed it. My pick is for #1 - lavender. I think the colors pop on that one.

I really like Ray of Light, especially like the name of the fabric to go with the reason for the design of the pattern

Cindy in MA said...

I agree with your dh. The Solo Lavender.

Sandy In Montana said...

I'm on your DH side. I like Ray of Light.

Emily said...

No question, go with the lavender. I love that color floss, so colorful.

Deb said...

I think that I like Ray of Light also. Isn't picking out fabric just about the hardest thing?

Lavender...

I like them both, but I think Ray of Light (the name says it all) would be a great choice.

I'd pick Ray of light!

I think the colours stand out better on the lavender - so that would be my vote :-)

Carolyn NC said...

I'm for the lavender!

I don't know if it's just the photo but I really like solo. The colors seem to just pop on that.

Kathy said...

Difficult choice. For the name I would choose Ray of Light. But your photo shows the lavender one blending nicely.

I guess I would have ot choose Ray of light.

Looks like you've got lots of help, I won't add my 2 cents, just looking forward to your progress on it. I'm a member over there....I haven't been on the site for quite awhile.

Vicki!! I'm so glad that you will be doing the SAL as well! Me too! :)

Alright... my vote is for #2. I just think the bright colours will be nice on the lighter yellow.
