Color inspiration

The articles and recipes were interesting, but what I really gleaned from these magazines were some fun color combinations for future quilts.

Turquoise, lime green and yellow (with a touch of tomato red):


Lime green, hot pink and yellow:

Turquoise, orange and hot pink.


What color combinations are inspiring you this summer?

  1. These are some great ideas. I've also seen some amazing color palettes over at http://theperfectpalette.blogspot.com/. It's mainly for weddings, but I keep seeing lots of other ideas in the colors too!

  3. I have that BHG magazine and am planning a quilt based on the cover too! I hadn't seen the GH mag but have already completed a wall quilt using orange, hot pink and turquoise. You can check it out (Citrus Carolina) on my blog.

    Good luck with your quilt projects!

  7. Um. If "stretchy pant" were a color that'd be my choice. I am living in Stretchy this summer.

  9. What a great post!
    When someone has trouble picking colours I often say to look at the media because they usually get it right.
