Color Realizations {& Giveaway!}

Many makers have a signature style, a color palette they visit again and again, or perhaps an aesthetic that just makes their heart sing and their makes shine. We all know how much I love a rainbow, but recently I’ve felt the need to dive into other color combinations and experiment elsewhere. I’ve tried color combinations that have felt way out of my comfort zone, played with more monochromatic palettes, and have experimented with predetermined colors (paired with improv, no less!). While I do love the makes I’ve created through these experiments, I’ve realized that I truly love a rainbow gradient, but more specifically, I’m drawn strongly to tertiary colors.

color star tertiary wikipediaAs a refresher, the tertiary colors are the ones that fall between the primary and secondary colors, namely: Vermillion (red-orange), Amber (orange-yellow), Chartreuse (yellow-green, or lime), Teal (green-blue), Violet (blue-purple), and Magenta (purple-red). Thank you, Wikipedia for the great graphic! Even when a project isn’t a full rainbow spectrum, if it consists of tertiary colors it still makes my heart sing. Primaries? Not so much. Secondaries? Meh. Tertiaries? Oh, yesssss! All the colors? Even better!

I’ve decided that once a few last non-rainbow projects are completed, I am going to let go of my hesitancy to creating rainbow-everything. I will embrace my rainbow-loving self and create a rainbow-filled world! I have some really fun projects on the horizon and I can’t wait to share them with you!  Do you have a specific color combination that makes your heart sing and your eyes turn into hearts? Tell me about it in the comments and enter to win a great bundle of some of MY favorites!

  1. What a gorgeous bunch of fabrics, and they really do seem very much like your colours, Kitty! Thanks for the chance to win. I find myself always drawn to blue. It doesn’t really matter what shade, just so long as it’s blue 🙂


  2. I love orange, though intend to hoard it more than use it, lol. I would love that bundle. Thanks for the opportunity to win!


  3. I tend to use an analogous range the most and primarily cool colors. Like you, I’ve tried other color combos and eventually come back to the analogous colors. Good for you to understand your color personality.


  4. Greens are definately my primary color! I tend to pair it with Yellows, browns and darler shades of grey, though when paired with Amber/rusty colors, my heart truly DOES sqeal a bit!


  5. I’ve been obsessed with teals, mustard yellows and greys for about a year. Love this bumdle. Such saturated colors!


  6. I love reds and teals and seem to be drawn to them when buying fabrics.
    I follow fat quarter shop on Facebook and Instagram
    I follow late night quilters on Facebook.


  7. I find myself gravitating to red violet a LOT……. I wondered about this lately and had a vivid recollection from grade school and how red violet was always my favorite crayon color….go figure! 🙂


  8. I follow FQ shop via FB, Instagram and Bloglovin…I also should have mentioned in my other entry, I follow you on Instagram as well!


  9. I am drawn a LOT toward teals, purples, and those luxuerious greens- like peacocks, but I grew up with peacocks in the same town and their child-like crys freak me out so no on actual peacocks, though I adore their feathers. When making quilts for others I have been finding myself using a lot of blacks and blues bizzarely enough.


  10. All the colors! I have a pile selected for a project with tertiary colors that I have not started yet
