Second Thoughts on Easy Street
Based on the yardage needed according to Bonnie's first Easy Street post, I thought I chose red as the dominant color. But it turns out - as you can see - that teal became the dominant one. I like the teal but it's just a little too strong and maybe a little too dark, too.
Since only squares have been cut from the teal and it hasn't been sewn to any other colors yet I could easily switch it out. What do you think? What other colors would work to replace it? Could I use a medium/dark gold? Maybe a butterscotch-y gold? Or how about a pale olive green? Or how about a lighter variation of teal?
I'd be grateful for any thoughts or suggestions you'd care to share. Thanks!
P.S. Of the two photos above, the first comes closer to the colors my eyes see when I look at the actual blocks, or maybe somewhere between the two photos.
