I don't really want to fill up the collection with just different colour options. But I've added <a href="http://www.spoonflower.com/fabric/1089939">a copy in the golden sandy yellows</a> I tested and used on another design. You get more depth with other colours though. Eg brown - which is where the orangey yellows go when you darken them, anyway, while the more lemony ones go green.

It's mostly a question of whether you are trying to view it as a jellyfish or as an interesting abstract. With the latter view - which is far more likely to be the quilting one(!) - the sort of colours I might suggest would be a deep purple background with strong pinks for the fill and gold detailing. But, yes, the shallow seas extreme could take it to either sandy yellows or rocky browns.
Hhhmmm Sef, I take your point, but all the same... what about a sandy background? Still in line with the overall concept... I thought another one was my favourite but actually, the more I look at this one the more I think maybe this one is my favourite. It's just such a classic shape. And design. And for quilters it has all those nice lines just begging to be stitched. I think it would also suit trapunto.
I didn't proof any with mixed colours (although there are plenty of colours that I know would work). More "garish" options are certainly possible - and could be done if you actually had need of some specific colours to go with something else. But colouring the entities differently means breaking the symmetry; and colouring the components differently means going for a completely different effect than my original intention - where it's the thickness of jelly which alters the lightness within a given colour of water.
It will just mean that the name has shifted yet again! The one that I re-tested earlier still worked.
This variation of the pattern is quite lovely. It makes me wonder how it would look with a little more differentiation between the colours, or, (dare I say it?) the introduction of another colour... (think: red - dramatic; yellow - sunny; etc.). It is such a CLASSIC pattern. Sad that your neat way of showing the undamaged version works no longer - maybe it's just my browser (the link: "See their undamaged version of the repeated image here." returns an error... Access denied... message).
