    Default Color question

    I am getting ready to start my second summer sewing project and needed a little advice on my color selection. I want to do the disappearing 9 patch block. I plan to use the Shades of Black by Me and My Sisters design. Here is a link to the charm pack: Shades of Black Charm Pack Me & My Sister Designs for Moda Fabrics - Fat Quarter Shop

    I want to add a pop of color and thought about using turquoise as my little solid color square on each block. I thought about using this shade
    Bella Solids Turquoise Yardage SKU# 9900-107 - Fat Quarter Shop

    Do you think these will look okay together?

    I think it would work. Personally, I would use red. Like this:

    God has a plan and it is a good plan.

    I thought about red but it seems like lots of people use red when doing black and white quilts and I wanted something a little different.

    Hot pink, red or bright yellow always look great with b/w. I also like the turquoise!

    It will look pretty! I did a B&W with turquoise. It's one of my favorites and just about everyone that sees it in my living room wants it.

    I also have a top complete in B&W with purple. I love how it's coming out.

    Personally, I think that any solid color would work - whatever goes with the decor or happens to be your favorite color. The turquoise you picked is great!
    Sometimes, when there's a raging fire,
    it's best not to try to put it out with gasoline.

    Oh those are pretty! the blue will look fabulous
    These things, I warmly wish for you-
    Someone to love, some work to do,
    A bit'o sun, a bit'o cheer.
    And a guardian angel always near.
