ID:	156754I made this gold and black with holiday florish antique story. I also think a splash of orange or red would be nice or for something a bit more elegant...teal

    Hi Brenda,

    Welcome to the boards. Are you close to a quilt shop? Take the jelly roll to the shop and audition fabrics. It will help you with selection of additional colors and prints. There is usually someone available at the shop to help you too. Do you have a pattern selected? Good luck on your quilt project.

    My 1st thought was a deep rich purple or blue.
    Depends how neutral you want the quilt.
    Maybe black or a deep rich red.

    I am a blue person, so I'd probably head to the deep blue batiks. Some of them have golds, depending on the maker. You could also quilt with a metallic gold thread if the quilt won't get much wear.

    My other thoughts were a rich black or a deep red, like Crimson or merlot.

    The pattern you choose may also play a part in your decision.

    Looking at the fabric probably what I'd try personally is Jenny's Checkered Dresden https://quiltingtutorials.com/tutori...quilt-tutorial

    I'd have to actually see the fabric maybe some shade of light taupe might work as the background with the jelly roll fabrics as the dresden pattern. The background is large enough to put a nice quilting design into it. Maybe using a slightly darker taupe or a shade of flax or light gold for the quilting thread. I like subtle sometimes and I think the pale jelly roll fabric will be the pop factor in the quilt. (Although, as always.....I could be wrong :-)

    I think any and all autumn colors would work great.

    what about a lone star quilt, (this is a jump in the deep end of swimming pool idea not knowing your skill set)
    the strips may make the star then add another fabric or fabrics to enhance and make the gold pop.
    have you sew 45 degree diamonds together before?
    or sewn Y seams?
    other wise consider M* star Block its at top left of forum page

    have used 2.5 inch strips, for squares, diamonds, triangles, half square triangles, so many flying geese, so don't let the strips stop your creativity.
    happy choosing

    If you don't want it too Christmassy then stay away from red or green. Maybe a nice pink or rose? Dark blue is also good. Jenny has a tutorial called the Ribbon Star. I haven't made it but it's been on my to do list for awhile and looks pretty simple. It's for a jelly roll. And welcome to the Forum from Wisconsin!

    If you are uncertain, there is no need to rush into sewing them. These are lovely neutrals to add to your stash. Hold onto them and something will present itself in time and you will know exactly what to do with them.
    Blogging ahead.....research in quilting and sewing with a dab of cooking/recipes too.
