Summer Color Guide for Quilters

Summer is a wonderful time for quilters to get inspired by the vibrant colors of the season. With so many beautiful hues to choose from, it can be hard to decide which colors to use in your next project. To help you out, Watergirl Quilt Co., a small but mighty Prescott, Ontario, quilt shop, has put together a summer color guide for Canadian quilters. Shop our quilting supplies online today!

 a green quilt


First up is the color green. Green is the color of nature, and it's the perfect shade to use in a summer quilt. When picking out greens for your project, consider using a variety of shades. From light lime to deep forest green, this color can add depth and interest to your quilt.

A blue quilt on a bench


Next on our list is blue. Blue is a versatile color that comes in a variety of shades, from pale pastels to deep navy. Depending on your project, you can use blue to create a soothing, calming effect or add a pop of color. For a summer quilt, we suggest using cooler shades of blue to evoke the feeling of a refreshing pool or a serene lake.

A quilt with yellow patches


Yellow is a cheerful, sunny color that's perfect for summer. Bright, bold shades of yellow can add a playful touch to your quilt, while softer, more muted yellows can bring warmth and sophistication. Consider using yellow in combination with other summer colors such as green, blue, or purple.

A white quilt with orange patches


Orange is another color that's perfect for summer. It's a warm, vibrant hue that can add energy and excitement to your quilt. When choosing oranges, consider warm shades like apricot, peach, and tangerine.
