The Colour Wheel Quilt is finally done. I just finished quilting and putting on the binding today.
It’s come a long way from this:
Here is what the sample from the book Quilt Color Workshop by T. Bruecher, B. Greenberg, L. Goldsworthy, and J. Adams (2014) looks like:
I made some changes to the original pattern and added a header created from the trimmings from the 30 degree wedges of each colorway I cut to create the wheel.
My plan is to use this quilt as a teaching aid when I cover color theory in the workshop I’ll be providing next year (which has now become two workshops at two different venues…more info to come someday…).
If you need a legend for the labeled colorways, here you go:
- Red (R)
- Yellow (Y)
- Blue (B)
- Orange (O)
- Green (G)
- Violet/Purple (V)
- Red-Orange (RO)
- Yellow-Orange (YO)
- Yellow-Green (YG)
- Blue-Green (BG)
- Blue-Violet (BV)
- Red-Violet (RV)
As you can see from the list above, “Secondary Colors” are formed by combining “Primary Colors”; and “Tertiary Colors” are formed by combining a “Primary Color” with a “Secondary Color”.
