What's on the Design Wall

“Colour Wheel” Quilt in Progress

Thought I would share a quick update on the Colour Wheel quilt/wall hanging I am working on using a pattern from the book Quilt Color Workshop by T. Bruecher, B. Greenberg, L. Goldsworthy, and J. Adams (2014).

If you are just joining us, here are the two previous posts giving you background on this project: Color Sorting and What’s On the Design Wall: So Much Color!.

Here is where I left off in the March 24th post What’s On the Design Wall: So Much Color!, looking at the 12 sets of 8 fabric scraps in the different colorways:

I labeled the image with the colorway name, I don’t have my actual design wall labeled.

Over the past couple of days I’ve ironed and trimmed the scraps to the size required by the pattern:

Then I made the strata for each colorway, cut into a wedge with a 30 degree ruler and put them backup on the design wall in order:

It is really cool in person, I am surprised how nice the color wheel layout looks!

Now to sew it all together, add a white center, and appliqué it to a background square.

I have two sets of trimmings (from each side of each strata to create the wedges) of each colorway and I am working out an idea of what to do with them.

Most likely I will use them for some type of inner border for the quilt. I laid them out on the design wall to hang out until I decide what to do with them.
