Color…Candy for our eyes

Color…Candy for our eyes

This week on facebook [if you aren’t a friend, check it out.  We have a good time there, too!] I asked a simple question..’If you could only pick ONE SOLID color to quilt with…..which one do you pick?!!?!?’  I honestly thought most people would pick white, black or beige.  I was happily surprised by ALL the colors that were named.  Color is something that is such a personal preference thing, that I enjoy hearing all the different perspectives about it, especially regarding quilting.  I love nothing more than to see someones project and immediately think, ‘I never would have put that together’ and LOVE it!  It stretches what my own comfort zone with color is and makes me want to try new things.

Color is one of those things too, that can change your mood.  I love that you can look at something and instantly ‘feel’ something.  {like romantic, or loud, or calm, or like you want to go to the beach really-really bad}  Oh boy, sometimes I get carried away, don’t I!?

What about you?  What does color do for you?!

 

Also,  Check back on Monday! I will have a tutorial for you using some new fabric from Riley Blake.  Ahoy! Matey. :)

And one more thing…If you like giveaways, don’t forget to enter our weekly one on the forums!  They keep getting bigger!  {I swear, we are crazy EVERYWHERE we are!!}

See you Monday!
