    Just bought this fabric online and it is a beautiful RJR fabric but need help picking some coordinating colors to make a warm wishes quilt. Any suggestions?

    LOL, I'm not nearly as visionary as Klue... I'd go w/ tone on tones in white and blue(s). Dull, probably, but soothing?

    really Klue yellow and red. How yellow bright or mellow

    I love Red so thats easy

    I tend to be too matchy matchy and yellow and red would really pop

    i would go for a mellow yellow like a tone on tone or a blender.

    if you could find a floral or a paisley that had yellow and red in it that would be great.

    The picture is quite small, but looks like that's an oriental fabric line? I'd find at least one of the blues on a colour wheel and do the complimentary orange/red for one colour...& a deep blue/navy for another...and then a pale ???? that reads white...........
