Have you ever challenged yourself to use colors outside your comfort zone? The subtle interplay of sage green and lavender in this paisley print caught my eye and I wanted to explore it further.
Did you know you could search for color palettes on the Internet? Just type the keywords into your browser and click. Up pop loads of inspirational photos in those color schemes.
I deliberately paired the paisley with green and lavender fabrics of similar value.
I like the way these colors blend into one another. It makes you examine the quilt closer to discern the patchwork design.
A reader asked if I use patterns for my quilts. No, I generally draft a block to the size I need. In this case, I only had enough paisley for the centers of four 4" Variable Star blocks. The quilt is 10" x 10" -- just a tiny color study.
