Sew… I picked out the fabrics and proceeded to cut and baste my first Hawaiian quilt yesterday. This morning I got up opened the shades and low and behold the orange that looked a rich mineola shade under artificial light looks, well, quite orange but not the same. I read in one of the books to ask the store clerks about stepping outside briefly to see what the true color is; now I know why. Then too, I imagine that most quilts aren’t to be exposed to sunlight and will be viewed in artificial light for the most part anyway. Grrr… the colors still match but talk about learning a lesson!
Anyone else have a similar experience?
