Purple wedge for color wheel


Here is the purple wedge, viewed as it will be in the wheel. I may still add more to it, especially in that light patch on the upper right.
First I did all the embellishments in shades of purple, then I added small amounts of yellows and golds. That's the plan for each block, doing all the monochromatic work first, then adding small touches of the complementary color. I'm working on green right now, and the red is so pretty on the green fabrics.
I really like the button cluster. I've been amazed at how many buttons are in my collection in a certain color when I go searching for them. I do think I almost totally depleted my purple buttons now that I've done two purple blocks. Time to shop!!!

The block looks great, and you are right! that button cluster is terrific! can I copy that for my next block? The complimentary colors are going to look so good on the blocks.

Just now getting around to seeing these -- I love them all! Of course, I'm a little partial to the purple and the yellow. Can't wait to see the others. Yes, I think the light purple patch needs a little something -- maybe a small embroidered pansy in honor of the "scary faces"
