6 Step Color Gradations
I have never been able to choose a favorite color. I love bright colors. I remember being very depressed in the late seventies and early eighties when pastel clothing replaced the bright colors from the past two decades. In my mind I think of that time as the death of color. Current fabric trends really excite me.
I added 6 step color gradations to my Etsy store today. Each group of 6 fabrics is made from a comination of two colors and in different amounts to create these fabrics. Golden yellow and hot pink make fabulous color combinations. Tuquoise and hot pink make beautiful purples.
My name is Chris Daly. I am a quilter and stained glass artist that loves bold colors. Sewing and needle arts have always been a part of my life. I have been dyeing garments for 20 years. I started dyeing quilting fabrics 5 years ago when I had a hard time finding the colors I wanted for my projects. I live in rural Wisconsin with my husband and occasionally my college age son.
