    I'm collecting fabric (grin) for my Carpenter's Wheel. I will use 3 colors & 9 inch blocks. I have a med.yellow & a white fabric. Need to choose my third color. I've narrowed to choc. brown or maybe a royal blue.

    Blues and yellows for the cool look
    Browns for a warm look.
    Just my opinion, I'd go for the blues :)
    Good Luck and have fun w/it!!

    yellow and brown would give you a fall quilt. yellow and blue would give you a summer quilt.

    Yellow, blue and white is a classic color combination. And I don't even like blue.

    Guess the blue wins.Thanks for the help. Blue was my first choice, then brown entered my head & wouldn't go away. LOL.
