My husband is colorblind- he has deficit seeing blues and greens. We have much more red in our house than I’d like, but he sees that color well. I’ve often wondered what he actually sees; scientifically, there are descriptions of his anomaly and explanations of what he sees. I’ve looked at my quilts and tried to put his color filter on them to understand his perception, but, ultimately, I realize that he sees what he likes to see.  Each of us has that unique interpretation that is colored by our experiences and what we like.  When it comes to color in quilting, I pretty much like everything….except what I don’t like.
