    I need to know how I need to rearrange these. Do I need to make any changes to get the right mix of Light Med and Dark?

    It would help if the pictures were in color.

    Actually to determine Hue B&W is best. I don't mind putting the photos on in color though

    K: I like doing things this way too. Right now I'm not seeing any that read "dark"-I see mostly mediums and some lights.
    Good luck with this-I'm anxious to see how it turns out. You always do nice work.

    Kwhite;
    Not a hue-master at all, but the texture is absolutely fantastic. I could see this in black and white making a very interesting quilt.

    Hi K,

    I haven't had a lot of practice at this, but here's what I see:
    Dark 1, 5, 9
    Light 11, 13, 16, 17, 18, 21, 22, 23, 26
    Med - the rest

    I like the variety of patterns - a couple of zingers in there!

    If you have a piece of red acetate you can look through it will show you the hue. 3D glasses have one lens that is red. Its amazing what that will do when trying to figure out the order from light to dark.

    I have seen these tools. I have never been able to really see hue. I would not be surprised to find out that I am Hue retarded. Color is my biggest challange in quilting.

    Oh, I would love to get in there and move them around. Like Jan, I don't see many dark fabrics but lots of mediums.

    I always get my DH to help me with this kind of stuff. He's red/green colour blind and is amazing with hue and shape.

    Oh I bet he is. What a wonderful use of color blindness.

    I guess that's my secret weapon. I'm also color blind and that's exactly how I was explaining it to a friend of mine recently. That's it: a built in filter. If there's got to be an upside to it, I guess that's it.

    I too, wasn't struck by any that really read dark compared to all that's pictured.

    I have such a hard time using that red "thingy". I just go with my "feeling" of it.

    I know, not very scientifically accurate.

    Are you looking for a continuous change in value (hue is color, I think value is the word you mean) from 1 to 26, or just within each photo?

    The way I do it ( to determine colour value) for my paintings is to stand back and look at the colours through half closed eyes, so you are sort of squinting at it. This makes it much easier to read the hues from light through to dark. Does take a little practice.
    Hope this helps.

    Good morning!! Without being able to p/u fabric and sort it. I see it from light to dark this way.

    7, 8, 4, 20, 19, 22, 21, 16, 17, 18, 13, 14, 15, 23, 11, 12, 2, 3, 9, 6, 5, 1 &10

    stand back and squint your eyes or if you wear glasses, take them off and look

    Don't spend too much time with the decision. Toss them in a pile, rearrange as your "gut" tells you to and go with it. You could spend the rest of the year trying to get "just the right" comgination. You can analyze and re-analyze and the last arrangement won't be any better than the first.
    I taught classes in watercolor quilts and know how this works.

    that should have been watercolor quilt classes.

    Another factor here is the wide range of texture you have which can play as much a part as hue.

    My favorite pattern of all K. I have made 2. I just sit in the middle of the floor, with my material around me. and pick up one, and go with what it looks like to me , fast. I do mine in lights, mediums, and darks. Never thought to do it in black and white. Can't wait to see it, know it will be beautiful!!
