    When you're making a quilt, in order for it to successful its not good to try to match everything; it can make for a boring quilt. Also you might try another tone on tone fabric, the eye needs a place to rest every so often.

    Depending upon a person's taste, a quilt that has matching fabrics in soft florals might appeal to the eye in exactly the same way that a Monet impressionist painting appeals to many. His paintings have no contrast, do not come into focus until you are at least 8 feet away from the painting and are in very soft subdued palettes, yet they are in museums all over the globe. Many people do not like them, but others pay tremendous prices for them. It is hard to tell someone what color palette they should like.

    Look on the selvage and find the manufacturer and the print name. Enter that in google. Perhaps you will find a coordinating fabric form the same collection or manufacturer. On my monitor your green looks very bright. They all seem to be the same hue or intensity or whatever is the correct term. I think you need a bit more contrast. The best way is to google a fabric search. Good luck

    Just a thought but if she does everything in blues the lovely colors you have choses will blend with her things and yet stand out because they are different. I hope you find what you are looking for. Looking forward to seeing your finished product.

    I believe UFOs are like scraps, ferns and dust bunnies. Once you get two, they send spores out into the air and more just happen anywhere the spores meet.
