Inspiration from the Dishwasher!


You know they say, you never know when inspiration is going to strike. Well it jumped up and hit me in the face the other day, as I was unloading the dishwasher.  These were the last thing for me to put away, but I stopped for just a minute and you know what, I like this color combo. So much so that I got a photo so I could remember it.  I do think I need to have one more color in there (cause even numbers aren't good for fabric choices) but as a base, I love it. And yes, even the chartreuse green. {Note: for my newer readers, I don't like green, at all, ever - just don't}. But....with the navy blue, white and coral, it looks good!

What do you think the 5th color should be to blend this out into a new quilt color scheme?

  2. Lovely picture! Maybe a green-blue - like the ones Lotta Jansdotter uses? It would unite the navy with the orange and chartreuse green? Look forward to seeing, whatever you go for. It's going to be great!:-)

  4. I have those bowls too! I love Fiesta Ware! I agree that a Teal could look really good with those colors

  5. Ha!! My first thought at the photo was "you own a green dish?!?!? Secondly, why must you add mother color? Is this an odd rule I'm unaware of??

  6. I was thinking grey, but I seem to always be thinking grey.

  7. I think a great shade of aqua would look great with those, or a gray!

  8. Light blue gets my vote. Can't wait to see what you choose!

    Also, I agree with Ann- I'd like to hear more about this "rule."

  9. Oh this was fun, love fiesta ware. If you go look at their colors my first choice would be sunflower (yellow). I think the turquoise would be pretty but I think predictable. The yellow would blend so well with all these other colors. Think FALL!
