Last weel, I wrote about Design Seeds design-seeds.com a great color palette tool for quilting, home dec., etc. There is another web site I often use, that I really like, and want to share with you too, Color Scheme;
and you can even download it to your iPhone as an app.
On the right of the homepage, it has a color wheel, where the user can set the color choice by moving a dot onto any shade of the color wheel. On the top left menu bar, the user has six choices; monochromatic, (1 color), compliment, (2 colors), triad, (3 colors), tetrad, (4 colors), analogic, (5 colors), accented, (6 colors). Another dot is added on the color wheel, as you chose more colors options, such as the tetrad. The user can manipulate manually those dots on the color wheel, to provide more color options on the color board to the left. Unlimited choices and options are available. It’s very easy to use. Playing with it, will be a lot of fun and useful.
Additionally if the user chooses random palette, on the upper left of the menu bar, the program will provide you with random palettes. Very cool tool.
On another note, our monthly give-a-way, from our very generous sponsor, Cuts of Cotton, is a black and white bundle of fabric. (A little irony for a post on color). The fabrics are really pretty and of course work well with so many projects. They would be a great compliment with reds, if you are working on something for Valentine’s day.
In order to be eligible to win this bundle, you need to sign-up for the blogs and facebook pages for http://www.cutsofcotton.com/ and www.hudsonvalleyquilts.com. Please let me know that you did in my comments box. Also, please leave your e-mail address. This give-a-way ends at 12:01 AM, on Friday, January, 24th. I will announce the winner on Friday morning, right here on the blog.
If you would like to tell us where you are from, we would love to know. As the Northeast heads into another very cold, and week, and more snow tomorrow, tells us about the weather where you live.
Happy Quilting, and have a great week.
