Creating Color Harmony

Creating Color Harmony

Creating color harmony is the act of putting multiple colors together to create a palette of harmony. Using different colors in different ways can greatly affect the character of your quilting projects. When I am working on a new quilt project or designing a new pattern these are the the steps I take in choosing my fabrics. I will be demonstrating these steps using my quilt pattern Concerto.

Step #1: Perception & Feelings

Consider how you want the quilt to be perceived. Perhaps you’re making a quilt for a new baby girl and you want it to invoke feelings such as fresh, new, and sophisticated. You can achieve this perception through your quilt by using colors properly.
