ugly color challenge (lesley – dec2022)
In September, Lesley hosted a discussion on color theory using the Studio Color Wheel. At the end of the program we were given a challenge.
Each participant in this challenge shared their most disliked color and then we traded with each other. Any sized sewn object was the assignment and here are the results!
I am taking a vacation with my daughter next week and will be gone at the time of the MQG meeting. I have finished the quilt top for the color challenge. My color was Aqua green. I have attached a few photos, please use what seems good for your slide show. I liked the photo on the couch, just because it is easier to see some of the colors. The pattern is Chandelier by Vanessa Goertzen. I used several fabrics with shades of Aqua green. When I came across the fabric with the ducks/loons I really liked it and was able to add some plum, grey, and taupe(which to me has a light purple look) fabrics to the quilt top. I generally like quilts with a smaller color palette, so I stuck with that. I would be interested in hearing other’s thoughts on any other colors they would consider adding.
