I think that working with the Color Wheel palette is going to be a lot of fun. What's not to love about 5 shades of 12 colors and 5 gradients? I'll have lots of options for the next 3 months. If you want to play with the colors too you can download and EQ7 file with all of the fabrics pre-loaded.
Tostart the series I wanted to do something really simple just to see the colors working together. I picked the Old Maid's Puzzle block. I'm having some internet problems tonight so I'm going to upload as many as I can tolerate. In these I'm playing with the shades and the colors in the gradients.
It's a start!
The only difference between these first two is the shade of the purple-blue border. It makes a huge difference.
This one uses the Warm Gradient
This one uses the cool gradient.
I also like it without a gradient.
And that's all I can upload with out internet issues this evening. I'll be back next week with more.
