I Have OCD - Think Color!
I was quite taken with this display of Peeps in our local Publix store.
After taking this photo and looking at it, it was all I could do to NOT contact the store manager and tell him they had these in the wrong color order.
They should have placed the pink on the left, followed by the orange, the yellow , the green, the blue and the violet for a rainbow order of colors.
Would this bother you?
I wonder if sales would have increased had they placed them in rainbow order? It sure would have made me want to buy a package in EACH color, even though I don't eat Peeps!
THIS JUST IN: I hear Peeps taste good if they are frozen!
I admit it. I have obsessive color disorder! Or maybe I have obsessive color order disorder?
Do you think this quilt would have been as effective as it is if I had mixed up the color order?
Do you think this would have had the same impact it has if I had mixed up the colors?
What would have happened if I had arranged these colored quilt blocks in a random order? This is one of the 8 Millennium quilts I made for my grandchildren. Each one had 2000 different pieces of fabrics. I made blocks of 25 squares and each block contained one color.
There are many other ways to arrange colors, but sometimes nothing beats a rainbow or color flow order.
