It’s pretty hard to believe that February is at an end. Even harder to believe, that in a little less than two weeks, I’ll be turning the big 3-0!!!!! I always figured by the time my twenties wound down, I’d feel like an adult inside, but I’m still waiting for that to happenIn the mean time, to distract myself from my outrageously multiplying gray hairs, I’ve been busy playing with fabric! I’ll be joined by my super crafty (long distance) bestie, Jessie of Inside the Paper Box. In one of many (thousand) conversations about fabric, a concept that has repeatedly risen is Collection Mixing. Specifically, as an aspect of quilting that many people confess to struggling with. It can be difficult when your stash isn’t huge to really feel comfortable mixing as opposed to buying a bundle of a set collection. I believe that only with constant practice and education, can one grow as an artist. Together, we’ve come up with a series of palettes to push ourselves beyond our normal “color comfort zones”. We’ll aim to blend as many collections as possible. We’ll try to illustrate how one color palette can be interpreted so differently, through our respective styles and stashes!!!!! We would LOVE it if you’d like to play along!!!!! We’ll post palettes in the flickr group ( Fabric Stack Fridays ), at the beginning of the month. Then you can link up in the comments with your interpretation.
I’m really feeling these colors together. Can you ever really go wrong with turquoise?
As always, palette made using the excellent services over at Play Crafts. It automatically generates the Kona colors for you, how awesome is that? I’ve spent a scary number of hours making these. You should definitely head over and give it a try!
