I've always LOVED color... the more the better! I was curious the other day and asked my yahoo group what color they don't buy or use. It's been fun to hear! Everything from pink to black ... and even blue (which is the color that the largest percentage of people like best!).
In my lecture I tell you a bit about a color study I did years ago, and show you some of the quilts I made. This summer I put that information in the color book I wrote (release date is 2007)... and I've written 2 articles for McCall's Quilting magazine on color, one on using yellow and one on pink.
What I offered my yahoo group is a 'Color Challenge'. This is challenge that can be with fabric, paper or even done with magazine images.
Over the next week I'll post my thoughts on color and help you work through a color study.
But first you must choose your color to feature, and the 'challenge' part is that is must be a color you either never work with, or think you don't care for (notice I said 'think'!)
If you are working in fiber, see if you even OWN any of this color. Same with paper. If you don't own it & don't want to buy any, then start going through magazines and cut out images with this color.
Next post on Monday!
Ps... Hope everyone is participating in Quilt Pink today, I'm at my local quilt shop this morning!
PPS... the quilt went with the color yellow article and can be down loaded from the McCall's website
