    Blue, teal, green, pink and brown....

    What quilt pattern would you use for these colors? Usually when I ask what color quilt someone wants I get one or two colors or a color theme like earth tones. This specific combination has me stumped.

    Just about anything! How difficult of a pattern are you looking for? The Creme Brulee with the first four colors as the strips and the brown with a cream for the pinwheels would be perfect. Here is one made by another QueBee.

    any pattern that use that numbr of colors. They don't all have to be used in the block but sashing, borders, binding. Do D9P with three and two borders with binding as one of the colors. It doesn't have to be complicated.

    Scroll down and find "Charlotte's Sampler". It has most of those colors, just add the green. It's on the left, about 1/2 way down. http://www.minnkotasale.org/artisan%20auction.htm
    I promise not to buy any more fabric until I see something I really like. Or it's on sale. Or I think it might match something.

    Depending on who it's for, maybe a flower basket?

    Something like the Creme Brulee quilt would be pretty, too.

    How about a log cabin?
    Using one color in various shades for each block?
    Think those colors should look good together.

    Seems like an odd combination of colors. I'd check to see how well these colors do or don't go together before I start looking for a pattern. It maybe necessary to elliminate a couple of them, like the pink and brown. LOL Those without any idea about color combinations will just list a bunch of colors they like not realizimng they may not coordinate in a quilt. I wouldn't worry too much if you don't use all the colors.

    How about a Yellow Brick Road? I made my first one in a crib size. They are so easy and so much fun! It'snow my favorite pattern. Here's a pic of the one I made.

    I have a book with designs and it gives the number of fabrics needed. By D onna Poster. Here are the names of some that use 5 fabrics. Peace, Jacobs ladder with 4 squares stacked, starry path, picnic,royalty ( a variation of a star)farmers field, sizzling squares, vortex. Try "quilterscache.com" for some of these.

    I just went to Quilters Cache and found the blocks are all in color so you can look at them and see how many colors are used. Many could use 5 colors if you change the center color or the corner squares. Have fun.

    I think those colors will make a great quilt. I don't think it's the colors so much as the tones and shades of the colors that make them go together or not. One thing I love about florals is that so many colors go together so beautifully!

    I'd look for a print that will pull your colors together and work from that. There are many ways to mix colors, and there have already been some wonderful suggestions. The D9P is my go to pattern, especially the Scattered D9P, for blending a lot of colors.

    Those colors would look nice in a Southwestern type quilt.

    depending on how difficult you want to go, how about a mariner's compass? These sound like awesome colors together.
