I've finished the snowball quilt I've been working on for Jeff. (His birthday is on Valentine's Day) His living room has beige carpet, off white walls, one chair is a burnt orange and the sofa and love seat are tan. Orange is his favorite color. So much so that he painted his kitchen and dining room orange. Surprisingly it looks good. Of course I love bright happy colors too. I think the quilt will look nice folded over the sofa or love seat.
