    Opinions please

    My oldest granddaughter has asked me for a new quilt for her bed and she has chosen the zig-zag model, I have three fabrics from Jenny Beyer´s Burano collection and I need another one but I don´t decide on the color maybe green or purple or maybe a light blue, so here is a photo of my fabrics and thanks youBurano- Jenny Beyer.jpg

    I would favor the light blue or another green. Your colors are beautiful.

      I think a dark green since you have two blues, then you would have 2 of each color. If you use purple I would choose two shades but then not use green at all. That is going to be such a pretty quilt.

          I'd use a deep purple or pink. I just made a bag with similar colors and they go well together.

                How about a Coral color.... probably muted or light for a contrast... or possibly a sand color.. depends on whether you want "more color" or to keep it the 2 colors with a neutral

                  I love deep, rich colors like the three you have. If this quilt is for a child, then I agree with GrammaBabs that adding a neutral tone would be good. If, however, your granddaughter is a teenager (or older), then you could stick with the jewel tones as you choose a fourth color.

                    I think you might need a lighter colour to show off the zig zag pattern. What about a gray shade with blue green undertones?

                    Enjoy life and do what makes you happy. Everything else will follow.
