Thanks to everyone who voted in the comments or purchased a copy of the Mod Star Tree quilt pattern and Transparent Ribbons quilt pattern. I wanted to share a quick tally of how the color choices were distributed in the comments, in the purchases, and combined overall.
The differences in the Mod Star Tree pattern were very subtle. The cover quilt is the same, but the pattern itself is framed in either a red or a green setting.
In the comments, the majority clearly favored the green setting. For those that purchases, a slight majority favored the red, and when all the “voting” is tallied up it came in at almost an even 50/50 split for these options.
Transparent Ribbons, on the other hand, was two completely different cover quilts (one in prints, one in solids).
Again, there is a difference in percentage of preference between the comments and purchases, but this time blue was always favored over the pink. It’s a tough call for me on this pattern as well; blue is my favorite color but I do love the berry/cerise/pink colorway of the original solid quilt that I made!
All of this information is really interesting to me. If nothing else, I am inspired to show other colorway renderings and I will definitely be really thoughtful about the color choices I make to frame my quilt patterns in the future.
Overall, though, I hope that I continue to work with and experiment with different colors. I am glad that I have been using pink more and found that I enjoy working with it. Perhaps it’s time I spent some time with red, as it’s a color I very rarely use! What color do you think you might want to incorporate into a project in the future? Would you be willing to try branching out (and does that mean using brown? branch, brown, haha, maybe I’m the only one that finds that silly)??
