Sizzling Color from the Aussies

The Modern Quilt Guild is a world wide organization which grew on the Internet. Quilters are choosing fresh color palettes and fabrics with bold, simple shapes and fun feeling. While brousing the international chapters I came across a fun palette created by Samelia’s Mum and shown on the Aussie site: http://sydneyquilts.ning.com/

It’s definitely summer here in the USA! I just shipped off one of my prints, “Pear in the City” to a patron in Victoria, Australia, which has a similar color scheme. Orange and aqua are the hottest of complementary color pairs, and are tempered in a palette by neutrals like black, gray and olive. Yellow is the joyful accent and a touch of pink.

Try this for your summer palette! It may not be summer in Australia now, but its Hot Hot Hot!
