I was flipping through this issue and found a great project on Page 32 — a colour wheel (note the British spelling!). It was something I’d been wanting to try for a while.
The first step is to paw through your stash and find 4 colors, dark through light, of each of the twelve sections in the color wheel. This was actually fairly hard. You’ll need a 2.5 x 6″ piece of each color.
This took me a long time. I had a lot of some colors (blues, greens and reds) and very few of other colors (purples and yellows). When I finished, for some unknown reason, I only had 11 of my 12 wedges for my color wheel. I have to go back later today and figure this out.
The next step is to arrange the strips and sew them into strips. Press.
This is as far as I’ve gotten. I realized that I have to put this project aside and work on my block of the month … I have a bunch of commitments coming up and need to get the BOTM completed today.
So here are my strips, arranged in a circle. Looks nice, doesn’t it. Once I figure out what strip I’m missing, I’ll add the 12th strip and then use the template to cut these out.
I’m also excited about all the leftover pieces. They should be very cool for a fun project.
