    I would like some input on what colour I should use for the ninth patch in my D9P. It will be the one in the center, the one that cuts into small squares. I am thinking a yellow or red, maybe a lime green?? ( purple? ) Not good at choosing colours. Please help. Thank you to everyone .

    Just a thought....you may want to use a larger print for the corners, Something that stands out. Love the colors you chose!

    OOPSs!! good question!! That's a toughie, and if I were in your shoes and I have been there, I would go ahead and make up a couple of blocks each way, to decide how you want the accent to look in the (more or less) finished product. Good luck. Hope to see the finished product soon.

    yellow & blue are classic, lime green sounds interesting. If you have either, post a photo so we can see

    I'm for lime green in anything.

    However, blue and orange is a really interesting combo, albeit way under-used, even though they're complimentary colors. Everyone always goes for the blue & yellow.

    Be different. ;) ;) Use a bunch of different orange fabrics, value- and texture-wise.

    I'd suggest an orange, or a nice yellow~
