There is an abundance of choices when it comes to choosing colors for your quilt. The colors of quilts vary immensely and the choices are completely up to the quilt creator.
Will your quilt be showcased in your living room, bedroom, baby room or will your finished quilt be a gift?
If your goal is to create a quilt that provides a relaxed and calm feeling, choose cool colors in the blue, green and purple families.
If your goal is to create a quilt that is more dramatic and exhilarating, go with the warm colors, red, yellow and orange.
Keep in mind……that you can play with the tone of any color as well. The tone is the lightness or darkness of a color.
Some quilters prefer to follow the Color Wheel. Using complementary colors that are the ones opposite on a color wheel to create a quilt that is well- defined and eye catching.
Whatever colors you choose, let your own passion guide you. After all. your quilt is your creation.
