I can't quite recall how I came across this class with Anna Maria Horner on Creativebug, but I'm glad I did. I'm not very confident at choosing fabric when I set out to make a quilt and I have been known to be disappointed with the final outcome :-). A little colour theory class seemed just the ticket! You'll need to watch the clip yourself if you're interested, but this is what happens...
1.You start by making a colour wheel using some paint cards (thanks Resenes).
2. You follow Anna Maria's instructions, without overthinking (what?? Is that like, not breathing??), and you end up with six different palettes.
3. Then you choose the one you respond to and see if you can make it work with fabric. I love that word respond. My choice surprised me - it's from the part of the colour wheel I tend to avoid - the yellows! (Right next to my other not-favourite, the oranges).
I love this little palette. Next week when I have some holiday time, I'm going to going rifling through my fabric drawers and see if I have anything in fabric that might correspond with these paint cards. I kind of doubt it, but I may surprise myself.
