    The other option that someone suggested was purples. I could try both ways. I just want to make sure it is right since they are more expensive fabrics (10 dollars a yard or so)

    Some soft yellow gold would set it off and punch it up ...IMO.

    I like your original colors. Very spa-like and relaxing. And the darker colors would be great for contrast. I think you do great with color. I'd steal that color palette in a minute!

    I really like those original colors, too. The only reservation I'd have about them is that lightest red and the lightest brown are pretty similar in shade, so not sure if the contrast would be enough between them.

    So what kind of bargello pattern are you going to do?

    I love your color choices, but I'd add some yellow also. Can't wait to see the finished project. I'm wanting to do one also. Thanks for sharing.

    Wow, that's going to be beautiful! I really like the look of it with a dark background. I think those initial three colors you picked out would look great. Are the purple, too. O.k., I'm indecisive, I can't make up my mind, LOL! :D Have you made up yours, yet?

    Hahaha. I dont know lol. I think they would both be beautiful, but since someone said that it was very spa like now im leaning towards the pink again hahaha :D Yes, I think the pink. It is going to be my bedroom theme so I think I could do more...with pictures of water and what not. We both love Mexico so yes... ill go with the pink! :D

    Your colors are so much like the colors in my Dear Jane quilt I'm making! So, IMHO, they are perfect!!!!!!!!!!!
