Red wedge, center circle, and the wheel so far....
I resisted putting pink in the fabrics of this piece because I didn't want it to look to Valentine-like, but I did go ahead and work in some pink in the beads and tiny flowers. There ended up being a whole lot more green on here than there is red on the green block, mostly because I have a lot of shades of green in perle cotton and only a few in red. I do know that strawberry blossoms are white, but since there is no white allowed on the colored blocks, these are pink.
The center circle is black, white, and shades of grey. The two prints are from men's ties that I've collected from thrift stores. It was really fun looking for buttons for this block, as I have many many buttons in black, white, and grey.
And here's the wheel as it is so far. I've done some embellishment to the center block, but the blue and orange are still bare.
