Monica, it sounds like any of those colors would work.
Glad you're feeling well enough to quilt. Keep it up!! :D:D

any of the colors will work. i believe the one chosen depends on who gets the quilt and how it will be used.
a girl - pink etc. However, green is always safe. Are they 30's prints. If so there are some companies who have duplicated the 30's colors.
