Palette Builder

Whilst visiting Pretty Little Quilts I was pleased to find a source/ link to the colour palette tool that you see occasionally attached to photographs. Cristina talks about a lack of motivation in her sewing and also the "in the rut syndrome with colour" when trying to choose palettes for quilts. She has used this tool to draw from some of her favorite photos sources to gleen inspirational colour palettes - even in colours that she shies away from
I've just played around with some nature shots to see what palettes pop up. If you particularly want a focus on a colour you can move the focus dots to a different zone in your photo or you can click on the + button to add another colour focus in your photograph. (It is really simple - the hardest part is selecting a photograph)

There is also the option of retaining the colour palette tool to match up with Kona fabrics

I have purposely not included the direct link to the palette tool just so you will visit Cristine's blog and have a look at her gorgeous photos (click here to go to Pretty Little Quilts) Have fun playing with your photos.

  1. This is wonderful!! Thanks for the lowdown on this palette tool. I will have to have a bo peep at Cristina's blog.

  2. This is really very very clever. Amazing.

    I absolutely adore the charity quilt and the sunny surrounding you showed it in. The rambling house perfectly serves the purpose. Your quilt-pictures are breath taking. You really have an eye for it.

    Thanks for your B-day wishes.


I enjoy hearing from you and look forward to your comments
