A palette like this one is kind of overwhelming when you start to think about selecting fabrics. It's multi-colored so does that mean anything works?

Here's a multi-colored fabric but it doesn't really work with the palette. There's red instead of pink and the blues are not bright enough. So, how do I match up fabrics to a palette like this?
I look at the palette and first try to figure out which hues are the most important. In this palette blue is, in my opinion, the most important color and it isn't just any blue, it's a turquoise blue. With that information I will first search for turquoise. Within turquoise prints I am next going to look for purple and pinks instead of red. The orange, yellow and green are the highlights. Here's what I found:
I just had to start with this fabric. First, I think it's a perfect response to the palette and I love it.
I think this is another great option. It doesn't have black but if you want a bright project this would work very well.
The batik aisle also frequently has fabrics in this color palette. It doesn't have every single color in the palette but that's never required. The palette servers as inspiration.
Here's a fun kids print that also fits well with this palette.
Laurel Birch is also a fit. It does have red but more importantly there is the magical turquoise blue with the purples and pinks.
It's also good to consider fabrics with the colors in different proportions. This one is predominately pink and purple. It still fits and you might find it more appealing.
Of course, you don't have to use all of the colros in the palette. make a sub-palette in the hues you prefer. Here are some examples.
Now I need to get busy on my own project! What are you going to do?
