Gender Neutral Triangle Quilt – HELP

The vision is my head for this baby quilt.  However, I’M STUCK!  Full creative road block.  So readers I turn to you for some input.

For the color scheme I went a little preppy.  I adore the jade color and think it pairs well with the mustard.  Here is my original pull from the quilt store.

That pink mass on top is a bridesmaid dress from the wedding.  That will be used as part of the binding.  Keep that in mind for the next part.  After cutting the triangles I sprinkle in some gray and white for balance.

Tonight I started laying this quilt out.  Something doesn’t feel right about it as I look at it?  Hubby says I’m overthinking it, it looks great.

Off to my stash I went.  Pretty sure it’s missing a navy.  I would love some feedback or ideas.   Note these are navy/blue, my camera wants to pick it up more black.  Challenge of night time pictures.

My eyes were drawn to the small navy diamonds to try and provide balance.

possible additions

I may throw these in too.  Leave your thoughts in the comments.

  1. I think the navy might be a fine addition, but the layout looks pretty good as it to me! I really think it’s a great color scheme.

    1. I appreciate that Kat. Maybe taking today away from the triangles will help.

  2. I love triangle quilts, I’ve never made one but I do like to look at them! I think putting in a navy blue would maybe make the pink pop a little more. Or you could just do a small amount of navy triangles, just enough to catch the eye towards the odd ones out. I think it looks great as it is though too, your fabrics are lovely. I guess you’ll have to keep cutting triangles and playing around with different combinations until your happy! Good Luck 🙂 Hannah

    1. Thanks Hannah! I’m thinking a few navy triangles may help. Triangle quilts are easy to cut out and I think the hardest to lay out.

  3. I like the addition of the very last print the pink and navy one.

    1. I still haven’t decided which will officially go into the top. I should decide that soon, the shower is in a few weeks.
