Here's An Easy Way
You Can Explore Color
When you are designing a quilt, color is very important. And color is very personal. It's worth the time it takes to find the colors that are just right for you.
I'm going to show you how I use the Invert Colors option in the Paint drawing program to help me find my colors.
Now let's see what happens when we play with colors.
Each color becomes its complementary color. Purple becomes green; white becomes black; and black becomes white.
I find this green to be a little too bright.
I like this, so...
The pattern is quite busy so a simple border wll do.
Using the Invert Color option, a complementary green and purple were found. Color theory tells us that complementary colors work well together. And I think they do too.
Using the Invert Color option is an easy way to design with complementary colors. But in the end what really matters is what you like.
