Color Help

Hi Everyone,

I’m sitting my  on my love seat right now, pinned down by my sleepy puppy and I am sick.  Not a really bad sick (don’t worry Mom, I’m alright), I just have a sore throat, am a bit achy and am stuffed up – alright I’m falling apart – Just kidding.

So while I’m sitting here I’ve been thinking about Saturday’s guild meeting.  I belong to the Flying Needles Quilt Guild and love every minute of it.

Anyways, they have these challenges every year and I really want to be a part of them.  I joined the guild in April last year and didn’t get the chance to do so, this year I decided I totally would.

I worked out what I would do for two of the three things I am doing and am set and ready to go (once I feel better I guess).

But I am working on a mystery quilt and have no idea what colors to use, so here I am to ask for help.

What 4 colors would you recommend I use.

I need  the following:

A light color, a medium color (something that will be a contrasting color), a dark color (which will also be the border), a medium color that will have a large print.    An example would be: white/cream, green, dark purple and a light purple.

What do you think of these possibilities?

White, Red, Navy Blue, another blue

White, deep purple, light grey, grey print

White, black, red, dark red

Can you suggest a color scheme for me?

    I’m going to say the black, white and reds.

  3. I’m going with your top choice. I’ve had a quilt with those colours in my head lately too.
