color...glorious color!

52 stacks of fabric.
52 4" strips cut selvage to selvage
156 wedges
one set laid out flowing from one color to the next (a little tweaking here and there)
sewn into sections

i'm adapting Jovelle Hoverson's pattern from Last Minute Patchwork and Quilted Gifts. Mine is going to be a BIG quilt...with multiple wheels of color.

color, glorious, color...

I've been blogging about a colour wheel quilt for ages, but haven't got enough fabrics! I'm green with envy that you've started one :)

Wow, its lovely. And your blog is great, so full of inspiration. I just wandered over from jaybird's. And I get to KC several times a year since our kids are there, maybe we'll bump into each other in quilt shop along the way!

STUNNING. Did you buy a kit of fabric, or painstakingly choose the myriad of colors? I can't wait to see the full quilt top.

Fabric swoon. Love the color wheel.

Kerri said...

sew pretty, jacquie!!

Trisha said...

Very pretty. I love all that color too. Makes me happy. I am currently working on my Schnibbles quilt for the month and I am doing a quilt that the colors gradate across the quilt in the colors of the rainbow. I have been surprised at how much tweaking I needed to do to get the flow of the color without having one stick out to much. It was time consuming but so fun.

Jane's Fabrics and Quilts said...

I love to read your blog, your are amazing, and really have a great eye for color, those are stunning, how long have you been collecting these fabrics for this project?

kpaints said...

WHATUPDUCK said...

Love your color wheel. I'll look forward to the finished product!

Within A Quarter Inch said...

Oh my goodness - how wonderful. Will you be changing up the 'color flow' in the different circles that will make up the quilt or will they be identical to each other? Either way - I can't wait to see this one when it's finished:) AWESOME!

Poppyprint said...

live a colorful life said...

Oh so beautiful! I just wish I could find some of your FMF fabric (I think it is called seeds or something like that). Obsessed. Really hard to find. Makes me more obsessed.

And it looks perfect in your array of colors!
