Color inspiration

There's a store in LA that I drive by regularly that sells bridesmaid dresses. I'm not exactly in the market, but these dresses continually catch my eye. This particular grouping really inspired my color sense... And prior to the hot pink dress being there, there was a leaf green one that offset these colors well too. (I think the photo I took has an accidental reflection of a tree in it that can give you an idea of how it looked)

Anyhow, you can see I grabbed some paint chips at Home Depot as I couldn't get the combo off my mind. And then I went home and picked fabrics to go in the scheme.

The photo with the blue newsprint fabric in it holds my final pics for a project... But the castoffs also made a great pile too...

Both of them are a little out of my comfort zone... Softer combos than I normally stick with, but I'm excited to use them.

Haha! Looks alot like what I'm working with right now! Out of my comfort zone, too! :) Mine isn't exactly like yours, but when I was coloring in my sketch last night, I got totally hooked on the colors in the sketch -- aqua, orange, yellow, leaf green. :) I will absotively make a quilt with those solids in it one of these days. Soon, I hope!
I can't wait to see where inspiration takes you. :)
