PP: Mystery Quilt

Patchwork quilters are visual learners who explore the use of colour in every quilt. How these colour choices are made varies between quilters. It can be as simple as

  • what’s in my stash
  • what grabs my eye as I walk into a patchwork shop
  • what I see in a magazine
  • what colours I’m attracted to

Sometimes it can be influenced by experts in the field of colour, and in particular it’s use in patchwork quilting. Jinny Beyer‘s palette teaches the use of including a deep dark and a bright accent, while Joen Wolfrom teaches how to use the entire colour wheel!

This week, the ‘Pascoe Patchers’ chose fabrics for a Mystery quilt class at PU. I wonder what influenced their choices?
