Sandy over at Quilting for the Rest of Us is having a linky party on Tuesdays with color and she has invited us to play along.
My fat quarters are generally sorted by color so it was easy to pick a drawer and start playing.
My stash is not huge, but I did think I would easily pull enough monochromatic fabrics that would play well together and offer enough contrast in value to make an interesting quilt.
I started with my reds as that was the bin with most and while I did have enough to put together two sets of reds, I didn’t have enough light or medium for this first group to make an interesting quilt. The first 3 colors go well together, I am not so sure about the top two in the group.
Believe it or not this second group was also in my red bin, but these fall more on the orange side of the color wheel than the reds above.
There is enough contrast in this group, and I think they would make a soothing quilt. They just don’t appeal to me.
Oddly enough it was my green that offered the most possibilities.
Green is not a color that I think, “oh, I really need that color” to make a quilt pop. And while the tones in these greens are not vibrant there is a lot of contrast with the possibilities of making an interesting quilt.
Then there are these, hand-dyed fabrics from Liberty Homestead. Bundled and ready to go.
Come play with Sandy on Tuesdays.
Enjoy the journey, Jackie
