    Re: Color opinion

    I find the contrast with white too much with KF -- I did one, and it just isn't my favorite quilt. If I was doing it again, I would go with grey!

    What a pretty color. That might match my Caribbean JR better. Now I have to decide which one to use!

    I noticed that. They are beautiful!

    oooo I went to look that up and I love it! Never thought about if they made solids. I'm making this for me so I'm going to look real hard at his solids. Thanks!

    I hate falling back on white for my background colors.

    For your fabric above -- what about a pale blue .... so pale you have to ask "Is that nearly white or does it have grey in it?"

    Or, the darkest purple from the fabric itself -- which to me seems to be from the top row, 3rd fabric sample with the geometric shapes ... the dark purple rectangle.

    Use a white background when you must, but don't settle for it! White backgrounds are to quilts what lettuce is to salad ... why not go for arugula or kale! LOL

    Lorie, I was thinking a creamy white or an off white. I do think the lighter solid white color will make those beautiful colors pop.

    Good Morning! How did you know I was up early. I really like the white now that I see it. It's too dark right now to get everything out, so I'm watching the Bachelor, which I said I wouldn't do. lol

    Have a look at Riley Blake's Basic Shades Snow. I think it would go well. I bought a table runner kit to sample this line of fabric and really like them.

    Re: Color opinion

    I'd go with white, but that's and easy option for me because I've always got white fabric.

    There aren't many photos with another color except white. I was thinking of a dark blue, but since Snip Snip had a bad experience with it, how about a black? That would be a good color.
