Looking Ahead – Fabrics for May
I meant to include a note in yesterday’s sneak peek post about fabrics we’ll be using in May, for those that like to plan ahead.
For next month’s blocks, I’m giving you a palette of four possible colors–white, yellow/gold, purple and gray–and asking you to pick three of the four for each of your blocks. The fabrics can be solids, tone-on-tone prints or multicolor prints that only contain white, yellow/gold, purple or gray.
The placement of the three fabrics in the block will depend on their value. Here are some of the fabrics I pulled from my stash as candidates for my blocks. Can you see that, while if I use white, it will always be the light, the other colors could possibly be used as the light, medium or dark? I’m showing you how they look in black & white, too … which is always a good sanity check for checking value.
It looks like the darkest gold would only work as a dark when combined with white and a light gray or purple … but I might try that just to see how it turns out …
