More colorful versus first Octagon Shimmer which is hanging at Quilt Con for any of you lucky people planning to Pasadena next month.

Whenever working with many shade, it's important to learn both hue and price additionally the commitment they should each other into the numerous combinations it is possible to arrange them in. It is critical to provide breathing room. It is important to team like colors collectively so transitions are pleasing.image you need to comprehend price and exactly how it keeps some thing from becoming also bland or level searching.

And yes it is very important to place the boring, dirty and weak hued colors in a quilt. They let the wealthy, brights to shine a lot more.

I'm training this three-day workshop, OCTAGON SHIMMER at Cotton Patch in Lafayette, California the week-end of Friday February 5-7 where we're going to discover this design and how to decide on shade effectively.Picture The Cotton Patch just got the brand new textile in filled with bolts and precuts!

I used the complete collection for Octagon Shimmer Quilt above making use of just FQ towers. I cannot worry sufficient the necessity of most of the "colors" you did not observe at first. Look once more and just study the quiet ones. Fool around with the display screen by supporting your hand/fingers to pay for the brights and see exactly how different it seems without all of them. Then look again at the top quilt to discover essential the non bright tend to be. Additional go through the landscape into the background void of all color except sky blue. Yet the drama of white to black colored is stunning. See just what I Am Talking About?
