    Help please

    I made this quilt in class. We used Harriet Hargraves Sophmore class book.I'm ready to start quilting...But I chose a pretty rosy red for the large squares, not realizing that it would pop out at me and look like a huge argyle sock!!!!! How do I tone done the red to help it recede? I thought about adding applique motifs on the squares or quilting a cross hatch pattern in cream thread. Your input would be much appreciated.

    I think it looks great the way it is.
    I don't want to brag but I can still fit into the earrings I wore in high school.

    The red doesn't need toned down. I think it is beautiful and I love how the colors pop out.
    You did a great job with that one. Quilt it and let it pop.

    I love the argyle look! And I love the border! I haven't quilted very long, but what about a small border of the light blue, then a bigger border with the flowered fabric?
