I have had this stack of color wheel fabrics for a couple years, with the intention of making the color wheel project in the Last Minute Patchwork Gifts book by Joelle Hoverson. After seeing a few other people blog about that endeavor, I decided it was a bigger project than I had time for. So I continued to savor this pretty stack.
The first Dresden Plate block I made as part of the Sew,Mama,Sew quilting month gave me the idea to make this mini color wheel, using Elizabeth’s pattern. It’s not quite finished yet because I still have to quilt it, but I love it! It was so fun arranging and re-arranging the fabrics so they lined up as close as possible to my actual color wheel. I can’t wait to hang it on the wall in my sewing room for inspiration.
I still have so much fabric left for more color wheel projects, since my dresden plate only used a tiny piece of 20 colors.
Spring has come early here, so our crab apple tree is in full bloom one month ahead of normal. It always reminds me of a giant flower, and it smells oh so good!
I am loving all the beautiful tulips blooming throughout our yard.
Enjoy your weekend, my friends, whether you plan to do some sewing, gardening, or visiting the market (three of my personal favorites).
