Today’s Eye For Colour video features Colour #28 which is a blend of medium to darker values of blue.  I offer these videos to provide customers with a similar experience to selecting a colour palette and thread choices as you would do if you were “in person” in a shop. 

I’ve chosen to create a contrasting palette for Colour #28 by combining variations of blues with orange.  Naturally, this is only one choice and you could create a palette by combining Colour #28 with whatever colours you like.  I remember when I first started quilting I made a blue and yellow quilt so this might be another option if you selected Colour #67.

What colours were used to create this palette with Colour #28? 

I started my palette by adding Colour Complements Colour #175, #36 and #37.  I then added several solid colours of DMC in various values of size 5 perle cotton including:

  • Orange = 946, 947, 971
  • Blues = 322, 334, 3325

I’ve also added some Rainbow Gallery products which include the following:

  • Neon Rays 124
  • Entice 297
  • Glisten 5
  • Petite Sparkle Rays 78

I hope this palette inspires you to experiment in your next needlework project.
