a whimsical decision

Wednesday, June 24, 2009

it is time to make a color decision on the whimsy quilt and i need your help. i am trying to decide on background colors for the front of the quilt. the walls of our bedroom are creamsicle orange and the quilt that we have in their now, that i spent WAY to much money on from anthropologie, has alot of the same colors as the quilt i am making.

i am leaning towards the lime green for the front and the rosy and the ecru (which is a light tan) for the back. i think the blush is too pale. what do you think? please let me know.

  7. I think the lime pulls all the colors together in a "lively" sort of way. Have fun sewing!

  8. I'm with the rest, lime as first choice. But, the rosy color looks really nice too. I'd skip the ecru and blush colors, they are too blah imo. I love the colors of the rest of your quilt! Very pretty. :)

  12. I agree with the crowd. The green looks the best if what you're going for is color that pops.

  14. I'm with Kassia - Absolutely lime and rosy. The other two are a bit drab in comparison. Unless the Ecru is used in a small amount....
