I've got the Color Wheel Blues...

I didn't want to give you the impression my sewing room is without blues! I have a few!! But they tend to run kind of muddy and muted.

 The first place I looked was my smallish tote of solids. Nope!
Then I have a little bit bigger tote of my bright, clear fabrics. I only found a few small pieces of blue. That was where I stopped on Monday's post. 

I took my "Color Wheel" fabrics outside today so you could get a better look. I found two blues that I thought would work. I also wanted you to see that I have a violet red in there too. 

Sally (a blog reader) who going to Houston has generously offered me some solid blues from her stash! Aren't quilters the best?? Thank you Sally!! Check out her blog HERE to see what quilt she made with her solids. Such a fun quilt!!

Friday is the last linky party for Cheri's Sweet land of Liberty quilt.  
I hope you all are having a great week.

  4. If you happen to pass by one of my quilts, I'd love to have a picture of you with one. "Thanks Judie" is in the Primitive Quilts and Projects display and "Esther's Cheddar Casserole" is in the Shenandoah Valley Botanical Quilts display.

  5. Two reasons for your lack of blues. Our eyes see fewer blue shades than other colors. we see most varieties of green. Obtaining certain shades of blue with our cotton dyes is difficult. Hard to get the same range as with paint or on a computer screen.

  6. What type of class are you taking?

  7. Excellent! Your fabric color wheel is looking great. It will be so interesting to see what the class will teach. The instructor's quilts, in photos, were less colorful [tho beautiful] than I expected.

  8. With what Sally is bringing you, I'd say you are set (though this purple loving gal would want more shades in that color family). :)

  9. Looks perfect to me. It will be interesting to see how differently everyone's eyes interpret a color wheel.

  11. I don't have much for solids in my stash either. I think what you've got so far works very well.

  12. Great challenge! I think the color wheel is wonderful as is. Always fun to stretch ourselves and think about things from a different angle!

  13. Looks like a Quiltville inspired Color Wheel. Stash enhancement in Houston sounds fun.
