Colour Inspiration Tuesday: Lily Pad Glow

Lily Pad Glow color scheme by Clever ChameleonColour Inspiration Tuesday: a free resource of colour combinations to try on your quilts.

Hello – Happy Colour Inspiration Tuesday! Today we have a soft feminine colour scheme for your quilt inspiration, colours that would look lovely on a little girl’s quilt or would suit a lady with quiet, dignified tastes. Introducing “Lily Pad Glow”.

The Lily Pad Glow colour palette was inspired by a pretty pink lily flower. The dark water and the yellowing leaves in the background really highlight the freshness of the flower as it reaches out of the pond. These colours make me think of Spring.

Colour Inspiration Tuesday: Lily Pad Glow

The “Lily Pad Glow” colour palette is dark sea green, blue, taffy pink, egg nog yellow, light sage green and light sienna brown. 

Perhaps if I was using this colour palette for a little girl I would drop the sienna and replace it with a bright teal green. Here are the two related palette so you can see what I mean.

I would try this palette on a quilt by using most of these colours in fairly equal proportions. This would maintain the fresh, almost confectionary feel of this collection, especially if you used white sashing or background. But if you or your recipient really like pink, you could try concentrating on the warmer pinks/yellows/browns and just use the greens and blues as highlights. Play with it until you find Your perfect combination!
