Blue! The 2008 Color of the Year!
Christine Mann writes for quilting.suite101.com and has used my Epiphany Stars quilt in her article!
The article is sub-titled: More About Blue, Its Many Meanings, and How to Use it in Quilts
Blue has always been one of MY favorite colors. Blue makes me feel peaceful and comforted. It's easy on the eyes (though,depending on the shade,it can be electric as well!) and it complements most other colors. There just isn't anything that does NOT go well with blue!
Of course, I must not know EVERYTHING (I'll readily admit this!) Because the article also said that colors to avoid when making a quilt for someone else are orange and brown...and I am in LOVE with orange and brown, both together and separately!
Maybe they are talking more about colors to WEAR instead of colors to quilt with..but my orange is STAYING in my quilts. (Come to think of it,I don't really wear orange at all...unless it's halloween or Queen's Day!)
Thanks Christine, for including my quilt in your article!
