Finally, I finished my color wheel! It is 31" square, with the circle being 25" across. The circle of wedges was completed, then appliqued onto the square of black velvet. Then the center circle, the black, white, and grey block, was laid under the larger circle and reverse appliqued. Black braid was hand stitched to the outer edge of the wheel, then around the inner circle. I did embroider a line of black chain stitch along the edge of each wedge, but it doesn't show except in close-up.
I used Warm and White batting, and a beautiful oriental print that echoes the wheel shape for the backing. I sewed ties to the back around the inner and outer circles, and within the wedges to help hold the weight of the embellishments. Then I applied a 1/2" black satin binding.
As always, you can click on a photo to get a close-up image.
On Friday of this week, Lauri and I will be taking our color study quilts to enter them into our county fair. If you haven't already done so, please visit Lauri's blog and check out her color study, too!
