My first layout, trying to get what is in my head in to real life.
I decided more of the color, less of the neutral. These are 6″ finished sides on these triangles, meaning I cut strips 5 3/4″ wide, then used a 60° ruler to cut the equilateral triangles.
Then I wondered if maybe it was too busy with color so I covered some of the bolder colors with the more neutral ones. That is when I went to grab a Kleenex and noticed how close I was to someone else’s color design. And I do really like this design, too. It just wasn’t where I was headed, today.
I questioned that maybe it was beginning to lean towards being “too” neutral. Believe it or not I lean toward the calm, low volume, palettes myself, even if you don’t believe me based on the quilts I make….
Then another try. This one includes all of the first colorful palette but thinned out with more neutrals. Ehh… It’s missing something.
And the final plan.
Maybe a slight bit of rearranging, maybe not.
And honestly, it is a not quite as bold as it looks on my computer screen.
It definitely has the sunset look to it.
I like it!
Thanks Amanda for being on the other end of the computer screen through all the different variations.
It is much easier to be confident, of your design, when you have feedback from a trusted source.
And if she’s your daughter, she can read your mind.
