Hi ladies and gents. I got bit by the 4-patch posies blocks and stacked, whacked, and sewed this morning. It is a Joann's "premium" Legacy Studio Fabric - Bobbish Flower A/O Floral.
The blocks finish at 4.5", so I'm planning on adding a .75" border to bump them up to a 6" finished block. I'd like to do a 2" sashing, including a sashed border and then a 2" border of whatever I use to frame the blocks. The outer border will be the print that I stacked 'n' whacked.
So here's where I need help. The main colors that show up in the blocks are the light & medium pinks and a yellow-gold. There's a hint of 2 shades of green in each as well, but the green is never the "main" color of any block. I'm thinking of using the darker green (if I can match it) for the frame and then either a cream or the matching small print for the sashing.

Here's what I've got so far:
