I’ve been thinking about making a wallhanging for a Challenge involving texture. Furthermore, my personal goal is to see how much texture I can produce using only regular quilting cottons.
I’ve had a bundle of fat quarters sitting around for at least five years. There are at least twenty of them in shades of aqua/turquoise. Before they start to disintegrate, this will put them to good use.
I worked with them for hours, attempting to narrow them down to a graded group of less than ten. I used the grey scale choice on my photo editing in order to work it out. After a lot of changes, this is the result.
It’s definitely not perfect, with the jump from lights to darks, however this was a good exercise in grey scale awareness and the importance of contrast.
So these are my final seven choices, looking a lot better in color, even though I had to mix green and blue tones to do it. There is plenty of time to revise my choices.
Of course this is a long way from a textured piece. More about that as I progress.
