Color my World

Randi from Fresh-Squeezed Fabrics recently asked me to write a guest post about Color in Quilting for her blog: I have to Say ...

I really enjoyed writing a blog post on color.  It certainly made me stop to reflect on how I use color in my quilts and what inspires my color choices.   Although I am certainly no color theory guru you may like to head over and read the blog post - here.

And because I like to leave you with another colorful picture, here is a sneak peek at what I've been working on for the last few days:

  3. I"m taking a class at one of the art colleges in my city and have been using color in a way that I never expected to do. It's really changed the way I see things out in the world and has really opened up my creativity in a way I never expected!

  8. Well, firstly thank you for introducing me to a new blog! beautiful!

    And secondly, I too have been thinking about my choices of colours in quilts lately. I have changed tastes, and evolved with my colour choices so much over the last few years. And once this hexagon monster is over, I don't think I shall ever make another pastel quilt again! It's bold, batiks and solids the whole way for me!

    (I will probably change my mind about that by tomorrow though!!)
