You Need To Play With Color
If You Are Going To Design A Quilt
Nothing is more important than color choices when it comes to designing a quilt. Color is the first thing you notice about a quilt. And color is the most important factor in determining whether you like a quilt.
You can change a quilt design just by changing its colors.
It's not surprising then, that designers have all sorts of rules about colors. There are whole books written on the use of color. Study color theory and you will learn about complementary colors, triadic colors, analogous colors and much more. Learning about color can be both interesting and involved.
However, ultimately the most important thing about any color scheme is do you like it.
Today I'm going to play with color to see if I can find something I like.
What if I start playing with color? Can I make something interesting happen?
The final design looks very different from the original one, even though all that has changed are the colors.
Do the colors I picked conform to color theory? I don't know. And frankly, I don't care. All that matters is that I found colors I like.
