Pomegranate is such a rich, bold and vibrant color. Over the years I have grown to love all pinks. I think it is my sweet little girls that have opened me to the color. I love this color in the garden...
I found that all my Pomegranate photographs were of flowers....I am going to try to find other Pomegranate things in my life this week...
Have a great day!!
Doing another drawing this weekend....Don't forget to comment to be entered to win! Or post a pic on Instagram @valoriwells #valscoloroftheweek or on Facebook Valori Wells Designs page....
Smoke is a great neutral... I love mixing warm and cool together in prints as well as in quilts. You just can't have equal parts or they compete with each other. This is one of my favorite Blueprint fabrics because I have always loved Queen Anne's Lace. When I was young my Grandma Clara and I would go out and pick wild flowers to put in a flower press to dry and then make cards. The delicate Queen Anne's Lace was perfect for flower pressing. Such a happy childhood memory!
Apricot, Cantaloupe, Carrot, Peach, Tangerine.... YUMMY! Not just a fabulous color...
I think that designing with Orange can be a challenge. As an accent or "poison" color Orange can make or break a good design.My mom is an amazing teacher. One of the concepts of color that she teaches her students is to have a color in your quilt that is a poison, just a little to make the other colors sing! I think that orange can be one of those colors....
I used orange in Generous to make the other colors sing...and because I like orange!!!
Have a great day!!!!
Remember to comment to be entered to win.... I will email winners during the week for your address!!!
Sunkissed.....reminds me of flowers....so many beautiful yellow flowers. The Sunflower is one of my all time favorite flowers...I love to grow them in my yard and watch my girls pick the seeds and re-plant them. To see a new sunflower grow. Yellow is so happy, it can brighten your day, make you smile. Its no wonder more people are happy when the sun is out.

What can I say as a black and white photographer I love this color... and there is something about gray that is calming and peaceful. Iron is a cool blueish gray that reminds me of the keys in an old typewriter.
Last week I accidently did a bad link to my new blog....
I love, love, love white.....cool white, warm white, almost white, gray white, cream white....ALL white. One of my favorite quilts I have ever made is Trinity which uses my Wish collection and a variety of whites in the background....cottons and linens which gives a subtle color and textural change to using just a solid white.
Enjoy all the subtle beauty of white!
Have a great day!
The lucky 3 winners will be emailed.... not to worry I have lots more to give away over the year!!! Keep your eyes out....
