What is the Opposite of Blue-Green?

I got re-energized at mini-group. My quilty friends all have very different tastes and piecing preferences, which makes it fun. Evette likes the "East Meets West" themes, Asian fabrics and motifs. Mavis likes anything Sunbonnet Sue. Judy likes machine pieced traditional, Kim takes on a Mystery quilt project maybe once or twice a year. And I like to see it all. I came home wanting to *sew*. Well... wanting to start something new. Remember my blue-green Snail's Trail? I've been piecing those blocks since June, trying to stay focused. I have 4o- FIVE out of 48 needed. But I need a break!

So I decided to make a quick doll quilt. Nothing flashy, just easy and satisfying. But what color scheme should I use? Hmmm... I have a bizillion blue and green 2" squares already cut. Noooo!
I asked DH for a color scheme idea and he suggested yellow-orange and red. (!) I pulled colors (with his help) and this is what we came up with.

I'm calling it "Firestorm". =) What a stretch for me.
