Last night I finished quilting a little color scheme sample that I put together. It was fun working with such bright, pure colors. I love how they look on the crisp, white background! I made this sample so it is easy to remember various possible color schemes. I get in a rut quite easily, so it’s nice to be reminded that there are other colors besides blue. (I can’t believe I said that! Let me re-phrase: there are colors that are less blue…)
It was a blast making these whimisical little flower-ish shapes. I enjoyed coming up with the funky flowers so much that I actually made a second sample, too. I didn’t bother quilting that one, though.
Here’s the full sample, complete with cyan-magenta-yellow color wheel. There is a flower stem for each color scheme: monochromatic, complementary, analogous, split complementary, triad, tetrad, and then a comparison of pure and muted colors.
DD#2 came over to play with me while I was getting things together for Friday. Look at the cute color scheme samples that she made. Wouldn’t this be a fun way to try out new color schemes? Can’t you just see these on a little boy’s shirt?
