I'm making a quilt for my brother with lots of dark fabrics and beige tones for the lights. I want to make the jelly roll race 2 pattern (with the little squares) and making my own jelly roll because its impossible to find non girly fabrics. So I'm using browns, blues, greens, greys and a couple of blacks. Yes, pretty dark overall except for the beige tones.
My question is what color should I use for the border and little squares? One of the brown fabrics has a touch of burnt orange in it as leaves, would it be too bold to use that? It's a pretty strong color when most of the rest is neutral. I also thought maybe a lighter blue. But would you do a light border with mostly darks? I usually do it the other way around so I can't picture it. Please help!
