    Pattern Ideas for Pink, Orange, Aqua?

    Hi friends,
    A dear friend from nursing school was in town and we had a great gab fest. She wanted to see the quilts I've been working on so I had a little show for her.
    I got to thinking that I should make her a quilt. She doesn't quilt but loves them.
    Her favorite colors are pink, orange, and aqua.

    Any ideas of a pattern?
    She lives in Redondo Beach and her condo is right on the water. (I want to BE her haha)

    Thanks,
    Susie

    Here's one I've been saving that would lend itself to those colors. Pretty straight forward... Looks like it's on sale.

    What about Bonnie Hunter’s On Ringo Lake. The base is aqua and orange. You could add in pink if you want. Look on her www.quiltville.com

    I think a Bargello would be awesome with those colors.

    Add in a bit of cream and perhaps yellow, and make a dp9!

    This is what came up when I googled it. I think just about any scrappy pattern would work. I will definitely need to make a quilt with this color scheme. So pretty!

    The Box of Strings Quilt Along with strips either side of a triangle (I don't know how to put in a link, but was looking at it this morning). Use one of the colors as the "solid" instead of black, and strips of the other two colors on either side.

    I don’t know about patterns but this new Tula line/colorway came right to mind.

    Now would be a great time for you to try the Boxed Squares pattern. It's easy and you can make the blocks any size you like.

    I did a Stars of Friendship quilt with added prairie points using pale pinks, corals, aquas, grays, and white. It turned out beautiful.

    Susie, I googled "pink, orange and aqua quilts". Quite a few nice ones there!

    Which of your quilts did she seem to really, really like? Maybe you can take your clues from that!
