Arnold and Gus each made one of these color wheels their first year in art which I have fallen in love with. I adore the water color, but there is something magical about the color wheel (this is the point where Munch will stop reading). As I was looking at the color wheels trying to decide how and where to hang them in the studio I was standing right in front to the "useless" design board. I call it useless because it's right above the sewing machine and a pain to get to without climbing on or moving the sewing machine so I rarely use it.
The color wheel board began to form. I contemplated adding some of these until I found an idea I liked better and besides these are already slated for another project. They are just so pretty all lined up.
I have been saving a sample card from Kona, from back when we had the quilt shop. Each of the samples was about 2 x 3 inches (tiny swatches), so I cut each of the fabrics out of the card and Fred helped me make them into buttons (I wish I had had the sense to get the camera out during this part of the project because once again it was such a pretty picture). I created the tags and together we made this....
There was an even amount of tags until one of the yellow buttons met and untimely fate, but there is no reason to talk about tragedies here. This is a happy color wheel place. We are still trying to decide if we like the tags with the strings attached or without and at this point as we are both ready to move on to something else we will leave them as is.
It was such an easy project and I love how our color wheel board looks so far. I can't wait to fill it with other projects. I have a small quilt planned, but it might be a while as this year is my year to finish things and not start anything new. If I already have the fabrics purchased I wonder I can consider the quilt in progress and can add it to the be finished pile?
Happy color wheel day (I wouldn't be surprised to learn there is actually a day like this).
