Thursday's Thoughts - Color
We all see colors a little differently. Wikipedia has an excellent definition of color. Part of the definition includes the next photo and description. Image and information is copied and pasted from Wikipedia.
"The upper disk and the lower disk have exactly the same objective color, and are in identical gray surroundings; based on context differences, humans perceive the squares as having different reflectances, and may interpret the colors as different color categories; see same color illusion." from Wikipedia.
What it means to me in respect to quilts is that the colors of the borders we choose for a particular block or quilt top really do make a difference in how the final quilt appears.
Remember I see quilts everywhere. I really see inspiration for quilts everywhere.
Look at yesterday's Wordless Wednesday's glasses of water. Here are two photos to show you the differences of the backgrounds. It is the same glass and the same fruit, but it is placed on a different quilt.
Which one is more appealing to you?
I prefer the blue background.
We all see colors differently.
This is the same pattern and it is quilted the same. See how the colors change the look of the quilt.
