When I began teaching myself to quilt, HGTV presented several craft, sewing and quilting shows. I noticed right away that there were many rules about color. For example never use colors next to each other on the color wheel; that yellow overpowers, and stay away from too much red.
Most of the rules restricted ideas and rendered me incapable of transferring what was in my mind onto fabric and other media.
One night I had a dream about something, and my great grandmother, Margaret, marched through the dream and said to me, "Throw all the colors together. They go. Don't they?"
Great grandmother Margaret freed me. I have never looked back.
