Let's face it. There are so many colors I want to play with. But as always, time is short.
How do I decide what to make before the Evanston Craft Show? That wonderful show at Northwestern University. Do check it out here. http://www.americancraftexpo.org After all, I leave on Tuesday. And I still have to work on my display. Pack. Sleep. And hopefully spend time with my DH and the little Tonks cat.
Placemats have been selling recently. A nice gift. A less expensive example of my work. I know I need more. But what colors? I ask and listen. "What colors are you looking for?"
"My kitchen is...." "Red." "Burnt orange." "Black and white with accents of red" OK that one is a no-brainer.
"Do you have any more of this blue grey?" If you had four...."
"I'll take these. "Can you make more of these?" Yes, this color is perfect.
Royal blue always sells. I can count on that.
But what else? Maybe a rust? I just sold a pair of apple greens? Oh so many colors. So little time. How does a quilt maker decide? How do you decide?
