COLOUR DESIGN

CUSTOMISED FOR YOUR QUILT

Would you like to create a quilt with your own customised colour combination, but you have trouble visualizing how that quilt will look like? Than my Custom Colour Design For Quilts is the perfect solution for you.

Different colour combinations can change the look of a quilt design. As an example of what colour combinations can do, you can see three different colour suggestions for my Starry Night Quilt below. The original Starry Night Quilt was made in white, black, grey and red fabric, you can find the pictures for it here.

WHAT I’M OFFERING:

To meet your wishes I have set up three different solutions.

I will make a colouring stencil (line drawing) of the quilt design you have provided me with. You can print this colouring stencil and colour all the parts to create your own colour combination(s).

B – COLOUR DESIGN FOR YOUR QUILT
I will make a custom colour design, including your colour preferences, for the quilt design you have provided me with.

C – FABRIC DESIGN IMPRESSION FOR YOUR QUILT
I will make a custom fabric design impression, including your fabric choice, for the quilt design you have provided me with.

Below you can see examples of what each option looks like.

INFORMATION ABOUT COLOUR

Colour is the impression the eye gets from the rays of light (with specific wavelengths), that are reflected by objects. They are perceived as red, yellow, blue etc.

If you read about colour there are many expressions describing different colour properties. I’ve written the most import ones down in the list below.

  • Hue: is what a colour looks like in it’s pure state, example: red, yellow, blue and so on.
  • Tint: is a hue that looks lighter, like there is white mixed through the hue.
  • Tone: is a hue that looks ‘dirty’, like there is grey mixed through the hue.
  • Shade: is a hue that looks darker, like there is black mixed through the hue.

A good way to show the relationships between colours is by organising them in to a circle, the so called ‘colour circle’. I’ve made a nice little colour circle with fabric hexagons to show you a number of colour scheme. The best known colour scheme is the ‘Achromatic colour scheme’ and the most used version of this colour scheme you can see right here: black text on a white background. Achromatic in simple English means: ‘without colour’. All sorts of colour schemes are used to create a certain style and appearance. Below I have made an overview of the most common colour schemes.

So as you can see there are lots of colour schemes with impressive names. There are actually so many colour schemes that almost any colour combination for a quilt can be ‘justified’ within the colour theory. However certain quilt designs need a basic colour like white and/or grey to strengthen the chosen colours, as you can see below.

Besides knowing colour theory there is a bit more to creating a great colour combination. After attending Art School and working as an interior designer for more than a decade, I am confident to make a great colour design for you.
