I am getting brave. I am going to try a totally different color pallet than the pattern calls for. In 2009 I collected red fabrics and I think this is a good time to use them. My color pallet will be red, white and black.
I am using the Quilt Dance Tags to identify my fabric colors verses the pattern fabric colors. For each piece of fabric, I randomly select a tag and I will use the row-block number to identify my fabric choice on the pattern.
Using the pattern I tried to identify the color value of the fabric used in the pattern, determining what I thought would be light, medium and dark fabrics. I used one of those red plastic viewers(can't remember what they are called) that remove all color and simply show value. I wrote L,M, or D next to each color then I selected my fabrics the same way. Once a fabric was selected I assigned a number to it and wrote that on the pattern. Each month I will have to pull my color selections and see if I need to make changes based on the pattern that month.
Now I need to start cutting the January blocks.
Until next time,
