Old Tobacco Road Colors

This is a message I got on quiltchat so I thought I would answer it here.

"Tamara,
I wanted to know what color choices you made in your OTR quilt. Love how rich the colors look.
Judi in Ohio"

I took OTR out side to photograph it. To show you more of the true colors. Individually the colors aren't anything special. The browns are kinda red/purple browns. I got them off of my mom's stash shelf. They are dated. I put some orangy browns and deep magenta with them and they played well together.

There are only 4 lights in the pinwheels and 4patches. They are creamy to slightly rusty colors.




I am pleased with how it turned out, and happy to talk about it. I hope this helps. Thanks for asking.

Your OTR is very beautiful. The colors are outstanding. I'm anxious to get mine done, but it probably won't be until the first of next year. It is a goal, and that's not a bad thing.

Your OTR is gorgeous! The fabrics don't look dated to me, they have blended well together for a wonderfully rich feel.

Hello Tamara,

I can't say a word, because the words I need, must be created.

Your Quilt is wonderful, I wish that mine will turn out as beautiful as yours.

Love,

Marion

Since I am the author of the asked question I must admit that I think Tamara is a master at picking the right color for the right quilt. She hasn't failed me yet. Everyone tells me I'm great at colors - maybe so, maybe not, but Tamara is undisputed queen of color as far as I'm concerned.
