Rethinking fabric choices

A few posts ago I showed fabrics that I would use for a quilt inspired by a photo I had taken of a spice booth in Istanbul. You can see them here.  I thought that the colors were a good match and they were.  But then I remembered my silk Dupioni stash and I love the richness that the silk imparts.  I want to use one strong blue as a complementary color, but I am undecided whether to use the purply blue on the left or that vibrant royal blue. I will only have very small strips of it showing. Maybe I'll go for broke and use both.

I probably should have had this quilt pieced by now, but I got sidetracked playing around with some surface design, mostly unsuccessful.

I vote for including both blues. You know that "more is better."

These fabrics are gorgeous and I think both blues would be wonderful. Can't wait to see how you put this together.

I think the whole color palette is wonderful!
