Color Inspiration: Orange and Mint

Color Inspiration: Orange and Mint

Here is a little color palette inspiration for you! When choosing fabric for this quilt (made from my fabric collection, Dryad), I chose a bunch of different shades of orange, including a more yellowy-orange, that rusty-orange, and the orange-red. I then added pops of mint as well as black and white accents. Notice I used the black/white accent fabric as the binding too. I like to use an accent fabric as binding sometimes -- I think it creates balance and cohesion.

I love jumping to the other side of the color wheel for my pops of color. You can find the bear pattern, here. Happy sewing!

I'd love to hear from you! Do you have any go-to color combinations??
