    Do you think these fabrics go together? Please give your honest opinion.

    i think so... the only one i think is standing out(that just doesn't look right with the rest) is the dark redish color one with the circles on it....

    I would leave the pink out. Otherwise you have a wonderful color pallette of gold with the colors going in one direction to the lighter shades and in the other direction to the darker shades. The pink shouldn't be in there.

    I would be tempted to add another plum or take it out and add a green (like your ivy fabric's leaves). But it's a nice lineup for sure, very autumn mums feeling.

    I like them all, but if I had just read your description and not seen the pic, I wouldn't have, LOL.

    I like all of them together, depending on what you are making. Did you use the 'plum' because of the colors in the leaf fabric on the left? You could use the plum as the 'standout' fabric, but you already have the darker orange one for that, and the color palate centers around the orange/yellow line. Otherwise, I too would take it out and add a more subtle green similar to the leafy vine one. Another reason I would take out the plum and use the orange as the bolder is because orange is in the black fabric. And you want to keep that one I would hope. This is going to be a wonderful end result no matter what you are making.

    I like them all. Each color helps pull colors from the others and I love that look, especially when it all pulls together and has enough offset to make it "POP" all the colors all the way around!!! Good choices!!!

    I agree with the general opinion about the plum. It's too drab with the crispness of the others, and too blue. Looks like its light went out. Try something on the red side of purple and with more saturation.

    Thanks for this post. I enjoyed reading all the responses. I agree with many others to exclude the plum.

    I think the plum plays nicely with the one in the lower right corner of the 2nd picture AND it blends with the pink.

    I like them all together.

    I think the plum is too blue. The rest are beautiful together.

    Our computer monitors really play with our eyes. The comments re colors, Seems there are different opinions as to what the colors really are. If anyone ever gets a monitor that has true color, let me know Drives me nuts when trying to purchase fabric on line, By the way, I like all the colors together.

    In the first pic, the plum-looking one seems to pull a shade from the leave fabric, so IMHO they play nicely together.

    I like what she said. I think I would do it that way too.

    I think the colors look great. Judging from the comments, I think the different moniters show the colors different from what they really are. Example, the plum doesn't look blue at all to me. Is your project a secret? I think it will be very pretty.

    I would pull the plum and replace it with a green for higher contrast. but that's just one girls opinion!

    Depends on the pattern you are doing. If it's bargello, I think the plum makes that little punch of colour you need to define the pattern.
