I’ve been going through some storage areas and I came across a pile of 4″ and 5″ squares. For a while I subscribed to a service through Hancock’s of Paducah, and every month or so they sent a stack of 5″ squares of the new fabrics. Among my hoard was a set of twelve tone-on-tone polka dot prints. With a little help from some Tsukineko all-purpose ink, I was able to get a full color wheel. I cut the squares into 30 degree wedges and sewed them all together. Then I gathered the outer edge and stuffed it. It fits perfectly into a little cobalt blue dish I found at the thrift store.I’m also playing with a some deep blues, purples, and greens. Here’s what I’ve done so far. Next I’m going to add bits of yellow and orange to see what happens.
Look what I just finished! I made a color wheel pin cushion. It was fun to do and it makes me smile 🙂
