Transcript

  • 1. 8 Beautiful Ways to Use Blue-Green in a Color Palette August 2010 Color-of-the-Month presented by Maria Peagler, author of Color Mastery
  • 2.
    • Ocean blue-greens were my inspiration for this table runner.  I found a fabulous fabric looking like seaweed, with greens, teals and a light greenish-yellow.  I pulled other ocean colored fabrics and came up with this refreshing and bright sea-inspired runner.

    1.  Get Inspired by  Nature
  • 3. 2.  Use Pre-Cuts
    • "Under the Sea uses the Neptune fabric line from Moda, with a WOW from P&B Textiles, to offset the Half-Log Cabin with a big center. Set on point, the show block sings!
    •  
    • This pattern is in my new book,  Fast  Forward Quilts , which has all quilts made using pre-cut packages + some!"
    • — Pat Sloan http://patsloan.biz/patsloansfastforwardquilts.aspx
  • 4. 3. Calm Other Colors
    • 
    • "Blue-green is one of my favourite colours.  I’ve used blue-green to represent water, and thus it becomes a calm, tranquil colour in this quilt."
    • — Marcy Horswill

  • 5. 4. Use Blue-Green as an Accent
    •  
    • "I use blue-green to accent many of my designs.   This color adds a bright, yet subtle, pop to a quilt.  For my Kaleidoscope Symphony quilt, I used Maywood's Dab of Jazz collection designed by Gail Fountain."
    • — Marilyn Foreman www.QuiltMoments.com
  • 6. 5. Let a Designer Do the Work
    •  
    • "Collect pieces of your favourite quilt fabrics and simply join together to make this funky bed quilt. Add some circles for interest and spunk! In Born Dotty, I used large scale prints from Amy Butler.  Choose from a collection so all of the colour choice is done for you. Then just choose one colour to bring them all together for balance. You simply cannot go wrong!"
    • — Helen Stubbings Miss M Patterns
  • 7. 6. Combine Panels with Piecing
    •  
    • "Diamonds & Squares uses fussy cut Flying Geese panels pieced with "x" blocks.  Fabric designed by Yolanda Fundora."
    • — Barbara Campbell http://www.loveinstitches.com
  • 8. 7. Enhance Design with Threads
    •  
    • “ I live on the Emerald Coast of FL and I incorporated blue-green colors to look like the waters of the gulf (before the oil spill). I used blue and green metallic thread for quilting to give it a shiny watery look. The green plant is the nesting area for the sea horses. I call it Horse of a Different Color ."
    • — Nan Baker Purrfect Spots
  • 9. 8. Mix Tradition with Trend
    •  
    • "I combined my love of 19th century four-block applique quilts with the hottest blue-greens of 2010.  Petite Pineapple's spare palette of teal, aqua, brown, and cream spotlights the pineapples, dogtooth border, and freemotion echo quilting."
    • — Maria Peagler
    • Petite Pineapples pattern & kit
    • Color-of-the-Month series
