I'm having such an interesting time trying to decide what I will do for the Crazy Quilting Journal Project.
I have so many ideas that's it's very hard to just pick one:(
Block shapes.....there are tons of possibilities......hexes, hearts, circles, diamonds, squares.
Do I want a theme to cover all 12 blocks or just do each one as a separate idea?
Should I use "silkies"? I spent all day yesterday looking at free images to print out.....arrggh...I just can't decide....LOL
Then there is the colour palette. Should I use pastels?....or my favourite forest colours?.... or should I go out of my comfort zone and pick colours I wouldn't normally use?
I did remember one site that I found last year called Pallette Builder. It's very cool. You can upload an image and it will give a palette of Hex values, Kona cottons or Aurifil threads.
Play Crafts: Palette Builder
Here is what I did with one free image I found.
You can choose to go up to 10 values (I only used 6 here). However when you go to save the pic it cuts off part of your list on the right side if you use the full 10....bummer.
If your interested here is another site where you can build a palette as well......
Big Huge Labs: Color Palette Generator
....and, one of my favourite places to search for colour ideas.
You can waste a lot of time there just enjoying the pictures never mind the colours.
I better get my act together because I should at least be making block one very soon. January isn't all that far away.
