I'm spending the night winding down trying to pick my palette for the Dead Simple QAL at Lily's Quilts.
I love color. When I was younger I had to bug my parents to drive to a larger city so we could get a color wheel.
I've always had an eye for color. Pairing colors was the reason I started creating. I painted first. I still paint. It was dorm/apartment living that drove me towards fabric. Oils weren't allowed because of ventilation issues. And then I found I could mix my colors with fabric choices.
It's strange to me to be looking at put-together palettes. Normally I'll find one color/fabic/tone and start to pull from there. I let that first choice lead the way.
For this quilt I wanted to follow along and pick a palette. The challenge for me will be to not veer off.
My favorites so far:
I'm leaning towards that last one. Primarily because I've been missing the farm a lot.
An old photo from the farm gives me this palette, which is also an option.
I'll let it sit for a couple of days and see what happens.
