It's hard to imagine without pics, but I do have some.
I am making a warm wishes pattern. The main fabric will be Veggie tales http://www.wishuponaquilt.com/cgi-bi...es=0&lastmenu=
The three stripes she wants. The middle (wider) stripe will be a nice plant green that matches the veggie tales fabric:
It's the little strips that I'm worried about clashing. They are going to be the two colors that "frame" the focus fabric. She wants eggplant and carrot. What do you think of these?
I want all of the colors to be bright because the recipient is a little handicapped boy that loves veggie tales. He can see some bright colors. The brighter the better.
Do purple and orange clash? Since I can't tell the difference between pink and orange, I had my kids pick the orange out. They all agreed it's orange, so I don't think they are playing a joke on me. The purple and orange won't actually touch eachother in any of the blocks. They will be framing the focus fabrics.
I found the COOLEST stripe for the borders.
What do you guys think?
I think you should make it the way she wants it. You may be surprised at how it can all come together. He is sure to love it, especially with the brighter colors.
I think LoriEl is right. I think it will come out fine.
I made a baby quilt with all purples and oranges. These two colors were beautiful together.
Well, I clicked on all the links!!
I say it's going to be adorable!!!!!!!! :D:D
I see no problem, especially if that is what "she" picked out. :-)
I'm so glad. Her only requirement was Veggie Tales and those were the cutest fabs I could find. She thought purple and orange would be good to frame with. She asked me if they would clash, I told her I'd get back to her. If you all think it's great, then it works for me!
Thank you guys!
I think purple and orange are opposites on the color wheel, so they go together great.
ETA: Oops, no. Yellow is opposite purple, but orange is next to yellow so it's OK. Now red would fight the purple.
