Orca Bay Fabrics - all picked out!!

I got home early from work today and no one was here.  I took advantage of the time and picked out the fabrics for Orca Bay.  Now I just need to get all the baby Miles sewing done by the 18th.  How exciting, baby sewing and a new Bonnie Mystery. What do you think, is there enough different between the purples and the blue?  I tried to get darker purples and more medium blues.

  2. I like your choice - not crazy about the red blue black thing - haven't yet to pull fabrics.

  3. I think your colors are beautiful together! The values of the blues and the purples are a little close, though, aren't they? Can you pull some blues that are lighter? Or purples? Every time you change it, take another picture of it to see the truth of what you've gathered.

  4. I love the color combo, and I agree with Vic, I would probably go for some lighter blues, if possible.

  5. I was thinking of blues and purples and thought there wasn't enough contrast. I am not crazy about Bonnie's colors either, but I know it will be beautiful if I use them. I was thinking about using orange, teal/aqua and blues. I will probably play it safe and use the red, blue and black combo though. I just don't have an eye for choosing good color combos.

  6. Sue, I love your palette. I think, though that I would ditch the darkest blues and the lightest greens. I think you'll get better contrast that way.
