Urchins and Limpets Blanket
The background motifs of this blanket are inspired by sea urchins and the cheery centers by limpet shells. Any other combination of neutral background and pops of color would work well. Or change the feeling altogether and use a deep burnt orange as the background and stone gray, charcoal, bottle green, and navy for contrast.
