The Alchemy of Fabric Club- March 2017 Edition:
While it is great to play with colors and theory, sometimes we want to actually use the fabrics in our stashes! So here is an idea of a project that could use both the February and March fabrics for Alchemy of Fabric.
This is Cranberry Chutney. Admittedly, these are not the fabrics in the packs but the goal of Alchemy of Fabric is to take elements and put them together in fearless and confident ways. Kaffe Fassett is certainly one of the experts in putting colors and prints together fearlessly and we drew on his fabric designs for this runner.
The pinks and greens in this table runner are a little unexpected because of the lime. When looking at a color wheel, we can see that pink is opposite of olive green making them complementary colors. The lime is not quite a complement to the pinks but still in the green range, hence why it is a little unexpected.
Jean always says that green is nature’s neutral and adding a little green will help balance and round out a color composition. Sometimes that green might be the safe olive tones in this runner and sometimes that green might be the bright lime in this runner. Be fearless and try out some unusual color combinations in an art journal and as always please share your work with #AlchemyofFabric so we can see what you’re up to!
