Playing with Color!

Color me happy! I went to a class/group called Color Play at a "local" fabric store, and I am so excited about it. (Local = about 23 miles away, but you should see the fabric selection they have: We are going to meet once a month to learn about color theory and how to use Joen Wolfrom's 3-in-1 Color Tool. Over the years I have actually read a fair amount about color theory and the use of color in design, but it still all seems so complicated at times. I am excited to learn more and challenge myself. It's already making a little more sense, and it was fun to meet other quilters who seem like kindred spirits in their love of color, fabric, and design.

We are going to have a little challenge each month and then share our results at the next class. Tonight we chose a color from a deck and then a formula for color harmony. The color I chose was violet and the color harmony I chose was triadic. As I was leaving the shop I spotted a Kaffe Fassett fabric with violet, orange, and green -- so that may be a great start for me!

Sorry there is no picture for this post. I'm not on the computer where my photos are uploaded, and I'm still trying to figure out how to post images on Blogger. It just doesn't seem to want to do it the way I want to do it, and it is winning -- so far....
