Quilt of the day: Portrait Quilt

I dream of the day I will be an amazing quilter.
And if I could, I would do THIS.
Here is a great interview with Sandra Bruce

She talks all about how she did it, which just helps to cement the delusion that I could one day make something this amazing. In the interview, she talks about color VALUES. So I went and refreshed myself on the terms we use to talk about color.

Hue is the way we talk about the name of the colors.
Value is how we talk about the brightness or the weight of the color.
I found this discussion of values and the examples are really amazing.
If planning is 1/3 of the process, I am well within my third of the way there.

Happy quilting (and planning) to all.
