Hey Everyone, welcome back to Stash Blasting Wednesday. As kids we were always asking everyone what is your favourite colour? What was your answer? Mine was always blue. I know that I have colours that I am definitely drawn to and love to work with like cool colours and bold, bright colours. There are also colours that I am not drawn to as much, but still use in my quilting just maybe not quite to the degree of the ones that I am drawn to. On Monday I ran my colour class for a few ladies here in my studio and we had a great time talking about colour, creating a colour wheel from a bin of scraps that sits under my sewing table and making a gradated monochromatic fabric runs from light to dark.
Have been quilting 20 years and I’m amazed how much I don’t know
Sounds like your sight is a good reference place for some good imformation.
Yes it is! But you know, we never stop learning…I’m happy to hear you’re enjoying our blog!
I love bright colors. I have been studying color theory, this is the most exciting study I have done since starting to quilt. Learning how colors work together, the tones, shades, tints, and knowing what they are. This is why I have been drawn to bright colors, I am sure it will change again and again. Color is so exciting as it creates a mood much like the smell or sense of things such as flowers or essential oils. Color theory has opened a new world to me.
Hi Laura Thanks for you comment. I love colour as well and how they all interchange together and create different looks. I agree colour theory is fascinating and it to opened up a whole new world for me in my quilting endeavours. Happy Colouring and Quilting Jen
