DH is making me a barn quilt for Christmas and tomorrow I need to go with him to pick out the paint colors. Just can not decide. Any opinions/suggestions? It is an octagon about 2' across and will go on our garage which is tan with dark green shutters, not sure if we want it to "match" or not. This is a picture of the pattern he is following.

I think the colors of the pattern would look nice with your garage colors.

I would want something with purples and blues, dark colors......you should pick what you like!

I would not want something that matches the colors of the garage. The whole idea is for it to show up for people to see.

Can you deal with a sunny yellow/orange and dark chocolate brown? Looks like you could do a third color so I'd go cream.

I was thinking the same thing!

That's going to be a gorgeous barn quilt. I like the colors you showed us but I think they should be in shades that are darker/lighter than the garage so it really pops.

Oh WoW! That will be gorgeous!

Your DH is really talented!

And I'm with Monique - I will be green too!
