Quilting with Jose – A New Perspective on Quilting
I explained the basics to him about color and value and showed him how to use my Electric Quilt program (EQ). To keep things simple I recommended a rail fence pattern but to keep it interesting I suggested a four rail fence block.
Next I suggested that he use a color palette that included warm & cool colors and contrasting colors. We both agreed that this combination would make for a stimulating quilt for a child to look at. Jose decided that he liked purple and orange. So we added in the complement for purple which is yellow and the complement for orange which would be blue. To help lessen the intense vibration hat complementary colors can create I recommended that Jose use a cool orange to complement the warm blue and a cool purple to complement the warm yellow.
Here was Jose’s first idea for the design. We both agreed that the yellow and orange zig zags competed too much with each other.
Thanks for visiting my blog and happy quilting to you! Janice
