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. I use blue’s, green’s and white over and over again! 🙂 Love those colors. 🙂 Hope I win! 😀


  2. I don’t find myself uing particular colours but rather selected designers. I have a few favourites and I love to work with most if not all of their collections regardless of colour.


  3. Yellow and fuchsia are my happy colors….I always enjoy my project more when they are around!


  4. I tend towards saturated colors and tend towards the chartreuse/teal/violet w/ a little of magenta and vermillion (rarely amber). Rarely use primaries if ever. I follow Night Quilter via FB. FQS I am on their email list.


  5. I too am a tertiary lover…plus grey any shade any design. I seem to shy away from primary colors. To me they are too harsh. I had not followed you before but now that I have found you I plan on following.


  6. I am drawn to blues, acid yellows, and greys (low volumes in black, white, grey). I do love rainbow quilts but I have hardly any oranges and purples in my stash.


  7. I love Scrap quilts the most. But when I want just a calmer look, I have a tendency to still go for bright colors with flowers of all varieties and then pair it with solid. Playing and discovering fabrics is such a fun adventure. I found your site through facebook and would love to win this fabric. Just gorgeous! Thank you for the opportunity!
