Welcome to the blogsite of the Tollgate Quilters Guild based in Durban KwaZulu Natal, South Africa.

We are a diverse group with a variety of experience and quilting related interests and it is hoped that this will come through in the postings. This blog will feature different guild members commenting on their favourite quilty subjects and we hope that you will enjoy the variety of opinions expressed.

We encourage comment and debate but please note that this blog is moderated.

Colour Scheme Designer 3

At the beginning of the year I did a talk at the guild on colour- specifically monochromatic colour  and this is the little program I used  to do the graphics.

It's also the program that will give you the colours that colour blind people see rather than what we see.

This is a very useful program to use to develop colour schemes for your quilts instead of doing the usual " paint by numbers " routine and producing what everyone else is producing.

for those of you who are using Electric Quilt, you can copy colours from here and place them in your colour library the same way you would do fabrics.

Here is a colour scheme for you blue and purple lovers

This is what someone with
Deutranomaly colour blindness would see.Apparently this is about 5% of men.

Take a look and have fun planning your next quilt!
