Looking for a little help with colors.  Which do you like best for my Kommodore?  The first four are variations of Block A.  I've changed the centers in each block.  I didn't have time to create the corner blocks with the medium purple as the HST.  I'd be using the same dark purple in the corners.  I wouldn't use the medium purple as the center block in this version. At least that's what I've got in mind.  Looking for your ideas...
Green Corners with Pink Center
Green Corners with Green Center

Green Corners with Light Purple Center

Green Corners with Medium Purple Center
These next photos are of HSTs without the dark corner square.  These first four are green with the different center colors as in the Block A above.








These next photos are of HSTs without the dark corner square. These next three are medium purple with the different center colors.  I wouldn't use the medium purple with a medium purple center...




There are two other blocks that are variations of Block A with quantity of the corner patch (with the square) not being in each corner.  The Block D which I've not shown is the dark purple and either the medium purple or green 2" square in it's center.  I hope the samples are enough for you to help me decide.

This is my April UFO...eeks...with not much time left in this month decisions must be made :)!  The pattern I'm using is Judy Laquidara's Indigo on her website Patchwork Times under Free Patterns.

I like the dark purple squares in the corners. The pink for the center is too bright. Maybe a lighter pink in the center. Other than that I don't have an opinion in either direction.

I like the first two the best. Good luck!

Nice block, I would not pick the pink, I like the green and second choice is the dark purple. I hope others comment on your colors.

I really like the corner squares effect, and I actually prefer the pink and med. purple centers. The medium purple HSTs are pretty but I like the blocks with the green HSTs best! Just my two bits worth. : )

I like the first one the best. I like the dark corners and the pink center, although I might choose a different pink, one that is not quite so bright.

I like the two with the pink centers and either the purple corners or no corners.

The first green center and the last block is the most pleasing to my eye. The others, put them in your orphan block box for later.
