OMG February: Paradiso Quilt revisited

Sometime last year I put this quilt top together using a charm pack of Paradiso.
It started as a mini (the pieced middle part), and then when I got a good deal on the matching gray fabric to use for a backing, I decided there was enough fabric to turn it into a lapsize quilt.  I picked out the salmon colored solid, and used up the extra squares from the charm pack to give it a modern turn by floating them in the borders.  But I think I've just never been happy with the salmon color.  While I like it, I realized it's a little overpowering and just too much for me.  I recently bought a blue shade of solid, and I'm planning to rip-out the salmon and replace it with the blue.  I'm hoping it will tone things down for me.
Once I start ripping things out, I may decide to leave to leave the salmon inner border.  We'll see!
