Well I am Canadian so it is colour, though I am very much looking forward to taking part in the Color Collective (of course from the States).
I have never really been able to decide on one favourite colour as it seems to always change, though in the last years I do find a lot of comfort in blues.
In my early years of quilting I loved the softer colours and gravitated towards very soft colours probably because I found them to be soothing I needed the safety and comfort in those challenging years raising children as a single Mom working in a stressful office.
My friend Alva was always encouraging me to play with more colour to use real colours true reds for instance. She had such an eye for colour. She left me with with many lessons and colour wheels and fabric examples.
Over the years I became tired of the soft pastel quilts. Lately I am craving more, more colour, more contrast perhaps but maybe more wow in my choices! Maybe just change. Life should evolve and change, right?
So now, I am ready to embrace Colour and learn more about it. I have the tools, colour wheels, books on colour theory and of course information on the web.
If your are at the how do I understand Colour and Quilts stage of your journey I recommend Karen Browns you tube videos she has some very good and easy to follow videos to help you understand Colour Theory.
Her site and You Tube videos are a fantastic resource for not only new quilters but also seasoned quilters as there is always something new to learn.
Where are you on your Colour Journey?
