Color Wheel...

Who doesn't love color?! As a child, didn't we all love that new box of crayons or colored pencils? Before one ever came out of the package, I know I hesitated for at least a few seconds to take in the full array of untainted color. I have not changed a bit. A new stack of fabric, a new set of Prismacolor pencils, a new set of fractals for a canvas...I have to allow time to take it in. Color is mesmerizing!

I have this color wheel hanging in my studio...a constant reminder of what I love.

So when I found this pattern at Stitched in Color, I knew immediately that I wanted to make this...for me!

It was a great way to play with all of my batiks. I'm not sure if this will replace the color wheel on my studio wall or find a home on some other wall in my home. I wouldn't even mind it on the ceiling above my bed so that it is the first and last thing I see each day. Color inspires me!

I have just begun working up a sample for the new BOM class that will hopefully begin in the fall. Paper-pieced stars again in a very different setting. Should be fun!

Dear Zurn, your color wheel is beautiful!! I love non-regular pieces of colors, combinations of light and dark in one color. as beautiful as useful! I think I should make something like this too! :)
hugs, Masha
