WIP Wednesday

Color makes me happy. Especially coming after a long cold winter. I get a bit jealous of the springtime photos of blossoms and flowers I see online when we barely have a few tiny buds on the trees. No doubt we'll even have another snow before our Colorado spring is truly here. Thus this rainbow of colors is really brightening up a rather gray day here. Warm, but gray.

I but don't usually work with the entire color wheel in a single quilt, but my latest project just happens to really work well with the full spectrum of colors. 12 to be exact, taken right from the color wheel.

I also don't usually take the time to photograph cut fabrics before I dive in and start sewing. But somehow these bright cheery fabrics were just begging to be spread out into the color wheel.

I'll be pairing these brights up with some white and 2 light grays of Quilter's Linen. Stay tuned . . . I hope to have a bright new quilt soon.   : )

What colors are you planning to use in your next quilt?

  1. I'm so glad you stopped to take this pic. We need some color after this long winter.

  2. I need to get back on my rainbow-inspired quilt, as I only have two petals left until the top is complete. Then the hard part of deciding how to finish it off. . .

    I'm still thinking about your post from last time. So many good things to think about as I crank away on the quilting of the lollies.


  3. What fun bright colors! A rainbow quilt is on my list of to make, just need more time to get it all done. =)

  4. your fabric choices look so pretty together!

  5. Eeek! Architextures. I am secretly in love with Carolyn Friedlander. You've perfectly illustrated part of your creative fingerprint in the bold color choices. I can't wait to see what you create with these.

  6. SO pretty! This is going to be good. :)

  7. Yea for color this time of year!

  8. I'm putting away the snowman WIP. My heart is just not in it.
    Time for some real color!


WaHoo!!! You're leaving me a comment. Thanks for stopping by and do come back again. Quilt on, Anne.
