    Your color selection is fabulous!
    Thank you! The quilt pattern is Radiant - got it online from cozy quilts (just google that).
    No it was not difficult - i laid it out on a bed to make sure i had my pieces in the right places before i started sewing.
    Sewed up pretty quick too!

    Jewel tones plus black and gray- really, I use everything, and need some pastels for contrast!

    I like bright, so I would probably use purple, yellow, and red or teal.

    I think blue and green would be my choices. Although I love red and black too. Let us know what you pick!
    A finished quilt excites me!! Whether is it mine or yours!

    Just finished a purple and sage green with lavender sampler. It was a
    great combo to match my friends living room with her sage green walls

    For me, if I were limited to 3, they would be purple, blue and green also. Fortunately, I don't have to deal with that limitation. I am currently working on a batik braid. I cut a WOF strip from almost every batik in my stash and cut them into half hexagon pieces, as I saw on Fons and Porter the other day. I'll post a picture in a few days.
