  1. Hi Teresa,
    Love your videos. So simple and understandable. I wrote a post about your Road to Tennessee video and shared it on Quilting Focus – a quilting directory website – and linked it back to you here and to your YouTube channel.

  2. Hello, I am new to quilting. you make it look so easy and fun. Loving your demos. I saw a bit on your blog about colour. Any more advice on that tricky subject. I know what I like but if I put them together it is a riot, and not the quiet sit in type. Love your work.

  3. Hi Jilly. That’s great!

    Colour is tricky, you’re right.

    I don’t follow a rule to select fabrics and colours.

    If you don’t feel very confident you can use complementary colours.

    There’re some tools out there to come up with colour schemes such as Kuler You can use kuler to play around with colour schemes and learn what feels right and harmonious.

    When I started quilting I remember I used to pick the main fabric I wanted to use and look at the colour chart for the fabric on the selvage. That chart helped me choose other matching fabrics based on that colour chart.

    Also keep it simple for the time being using just 2 or 3 simple fabrics and a neutral background colour: black and white, black, white and red, blue and orange, green and red.

    Also tone on tone fabrics may be easier to use than heavy print fabrics. Or mix tone on tone with heavy print fabrics.

    It may help to look closely at a quilt you like and analyse why you like it. Is it the colours, the fabric print, the layout, the fabric combination, etc.

    It’s all about trial and error and about what you like.

    Good luck.
