Afternoon Sun­shine

Love Patchwork & Quilting - - COLOUR THEORY - bryan­house­quilts bryan­house­

An­other thing I love about this sea­son is the warmth of the afternoon sun on one of the last warm days of the year. You know the kind, when it's been chilly for a few days and then the sun comes out and we can bask like cats in the sun­shine. Yes!

I love all o f th e warm yel­lows, mus­tards, or­anges and pinks in my colour pull. These colours re­mind me of the light re frac t ions I se e in t he afternoon sun. And again, there are lots o f colours in this pale tte. Lots o f colour means lots of dif­fer­ent fab­rics – that's never a prob­lem for us quil­ters, right? These colours are re­ally close to each other, so I have mul­ti­ple ver­sions of the same colour in some cases. A scrappy t ype quilt would be ideal for this type of pale tte.

I'm not sure about what green I'd like to use, so I put out a few green ideas on the board. Let’s have a look at them sep­a­rately and see what we think.

Should I go with the bluer look­ing greens or true green greens? I sup­pose it doesn't re­ally mat­ter does it? But I think I do pre­fer the Kona Hunter Green and Kona Celadon. I think the blue hue can be a bit dis­tract­ing, par­tic­u­lar­lyin the Kona Sage.
