What have I done??
Dead Simple Quilt -a -long. It's my first ever . I'm not typically a joiner of things. So the concept was simple enough. Pick a colour palette in whatever manner works for you. I went to my favourite site which is Design Seeds and picked a palette. It was all good! BUT...now we have to pick more fabric to co-ordinate with our palette. Yikes! I know absolutely nothing about colour value, warm vs cool, scale, etc. In other words, I have no idea what I'm doing!! I buy a lot of fabric without any project in mind for it. I just buy what I like, or what's on sale :-), or if someone else mentions a great fabric. So I just jumped in and pulled out as many fabrics as I could and tossed them together, just wanting to get this part over with as quickly as possible! Here is my problem....I have no idea if these fabrics will look good together in a quilt or not. Are there too many? too few? too ugly? too busy?wrong scale? wrong value?need more solids? Seriously, HELP! I can take criticism.
