    I bought this fabric Black Friday at my LQS 50% off sale. Intend to use to make Lover's Knot quilt for a wedding gift. Well, forgot the pattern called for 4 dif colors - 1 light, 1 med light, 1 dark, 1 med dark. So, need one more color? What do you think? An off white? WOW? and before I start cutting which for border? binding? I seem to be having trouble visualizing this project for some reason - book shows so many options and not sure if would be better to make the background dark or light. any feedback would be so appreciated - no quilting/sewing friends around me to consult with!

    I think a DP-9 would look really super with these fabrics. Love the dark teal, teal is my most favorite color.

    Try to match the light blue in the print. If you can find another print with the light blue and "pink" it it that might be the best choice.

    I would use the peachy colour that is in the blue material at the front, i think it would offset the blues beautifully.

    I agree a WOW or a Cream on White would make a good light.

    You could take fabric with you when getting your other fabric to audition how the other choices look.
