Thanks for your comments, Joen! I did actually have several of the pinks from the photo picked out at first, and another green, but just felt that the pinks didn't seem comfortable together when represented in the fabrics, even though they look fine together in the photo. I'm not sure exactly why. Anyway, I think I will call this project "good" for now rather than expanding it into a larger project. I've currently started on a larger block using colors from a different photo that I posted on one of your class pages, and I really like how it is going . . . I'll be sure to post photos when it is finished! :)

Joen mentioned pulling out the "supporting colors" in the photo, but my untrained eye was having a hard time discriminating those. So, using Microsoft Publisher, I filled a page full of little squares and used the "Fill Color" eyedropper to pull different colors from the photo. I learned a lot from doing this! When I had completed the image, I also used the "Print Preview," set to grayscale, to help me determine which colors were light and dark . . . another thing that I have trouble with. Now if I could just figure out how to delete the extra images, since I accidentally uploaded four copies of it! :(

Ah . . . figured it out! I have to use Explorer rather than Chrome in order to access the delete options.

Anyway, my eye was seeing salmon tones that simply aren't there . . . and I was not seeing the more mauve tones that clearly are there!

I think it would be fun to make a Carolina Lily quilt using these colors. Maybe someday! :)
