Default Inspiration for bargello quilt

I make knitted dishcloths, and while I was making one like this, I realized that these colors would look beautiful in a bargello quilt. All the shades of color that you would need are in the yarn. I don't have plans now to make a bargello, but when I do I think I'll use these colors. Sorry about the shadows. I guess I should have used flash. I thought they were in sunlight. Photographer I am not!

Sorta like this one?

This was my first Bargello a few years ago. It's a small wall hanging and the colors are more purple than blue. My inspiration were the Crocus that just came into bloom.
