Yesterday, Jen over at Quilter in the Closet posted about color theory with respect to the Skill Building BOM. It's nice to know I'm not the only one struggling with the concept. One of the things she did was pull her fabric and then examine it in grey scale to check her color values and contrast. I never thought of doing that, but what a great idea! So I hurried over to my selection photo and did just that. I have to say, I was really pleased. Since I'm still building my stash, and don't really have anything in the way of scraps I bought almost all of the fabric for this BOM. Here's my little test of how I did.
Here is my fabric collection for the project.
And here is the grey scale image of it. I'm actually pleased as punch. I guess my eye for color is better than I thought. My blues could have a couple of lighter values and my greens could have some darker ones, but overall, and for picking everything out on the fly in one shot, I think I did a job well done.
Linking up with Heidi over at Fabric Mutt for Let's Get Acquainted Monday.
