Default Colors that go with salmon peachy pink

I ran into a wonderful deal on fleece at Walmart. Problems is - it's a salmon peachy pink color.

I make quilts which are sold to raise funds so I like them to be a bit unisex to appeal to a wider audience. I'm mentally stuck on what color tops will go with this fleece which I'd love to use as a batting/backing combo.

It's not a real pinky pink, the peachy salmon colors are stronger.

I looked at a color wheel and I see the opposite colors are green and yellow which would be unisex.

However I know that blue and orange also look nice together and I don't see that combo on the color wheel. So is there some other great combo that I'm not thinking of?

Thanks!

Yes, a new blue. My grandmother made blocks with blue and different pink pinwheels. I found a salmon color that looked fantastic as cornerstones and an inner border.

Peach and turquoise go well together, think Florida colours or Southwest Pueblo colours.

And reddish burgundy - I would not have come up with that myself!

Great ideas here! Thanks.
