I made this quilt (or I’m making this quilt):
The colors are fairly ok . . not too bright; not too dull.
Over the weekend I was pulling fabrics for a new project. I had in my mind kinda what I wanted. Kinda this:
I just couldn’t get it right though. The purple was too dark for the greens. I wanted a lighter orangish red and then a darker reddish orange and couldn’t come up with that. My sewing room was a terrible disaster (worse than normal!) and nothing was working.
Then the thought occurred to me. These just aren’t the colors I enjoy working with. I can pull off a quilt or two of more subdued colors but the time comes when I must go back to my brighter fabrics. These are the fabrics that were chosen to be used in the current quilt.
