Color value is a term used to describe contrast among colors, and typically refers to how dark or light a color is in relation to its surroundings. For instance, a dark blue swatch of fabric appears very dark when placed next to a beige, but turns into a medium when compared to black.
- Pieces of quilting fabrics cut from colors of the same value blend when sewn side by side.
- Fabrics of lighter or darker color values display clearly defined boundaries when sewn together.
