Colour Theory for Quilters
The idea for this series came about out of a frustration at not being able to find a whole lot of information on how to use colour when I had just started quilting a couple of years ago. There is a tonne of information out there on the basics (definitions, colour wheel etc) but very little linking it to the practical stuff - how to choose a palette and fabrics to make a visually interesting quilt.
The people I've asked to guest post in this series know their stuff – they are people who have either been learning about various colour theory concepts through their local MQG or who have background in art, or who have simply done a lot of research as part of designing their own quilts. I'm really excited about presenting this, and about learning a bit more about colour. I will update this page with links to each of the posts.
The schedule for the theory posts is:
Guest Post by Molli at Molli Sparkles
Guest Post by Jess of Quilty Habit
Guest post by Jennifer of Secondhand Dinosaur
Guest post by Rebecca of Making Rebecca Lynne
At the end of these posts, I've asked a few prominent quilters (who use colour exceptionally well) to give an insight into how they find colour inspiration for their quilts, how they choose fabric, and a bit about their process when designing.
I hope you'll join me in what I think will be an inspirational and informative series of posts :o)
