I recently read the book Floret Farm’s A Year in Flowers.
It is full of gorgeous arrangements that challenge me to move beyond my basic mason jar bouquets.
The most eye-opening concept in the book for me, however, was the idea of blenders. Using a flower or piece of foliage with more than one color on it allows the designer to combine colors that might not otherwise be used together.
I have already used this concept three times.
I’m sure this principle could also be used in quilting. This was fun.
