52 Weeks of Color for Quilters :: Week 21 Split Complements (7)

Phew. Life has been getting the better of me for the last few weeks and I was determined to stop thinking and stressing about being off track with my color project and just get back to it. So here we are - back on track. Insert grin here.

We're starting the last six of the twelve sets of Split Complements - these are all improv blocks that measure 12.5"

The colors this week are Green, Red-orange and Red-violet and I have to admit I find this combination a bit...odd? Off? Unappealing? A little bit of all of those. But it is interesting and it made we wonder if I could actually use these colors together in a way that made them attractive and likable. Still thinking about it - I'll keep you posted ;-)

So I thought it would be interesting to include the tints (above), tones (below main colors) and shades  (bottom row) as well. I don't have time to make blocks in all the different combinations but it's fun to see them all together. The main colors this week used Kona Flame (red-orange), Clover (green) and Bordeaux (red-violet).

The funny thing? When I pulled some prints from my stash in this color combination I actually liked them more! Still not quite ready to start cutting but you never know. Thanks for stopping by!
