Jen wanted her block in any size, with a gray background and two tertiary colors. Tertiary. Hmmmm. Time to consult the color wheel.
Bet you know what the primary colors are: red, blue, and yellow. And the secondary colors aren't hard to figure out--they are made using two primaries: violet (red and blue), green (blue and yellow), and orange (yellow and red).
Tertiary colors are made by combining a primary and a secondary color. So they include red-violet, red-orange, yellow-green, yellow-orange, blue-violet, and blue-green. For my block, I chose blue-violet and yellow-green.
Janice wanted this 8" block using our favorite colors. Janice didn't know if the block had a name so I'll ask. Does anyone know the name for this one?
My favorite color is purple but I love blue and gree as well so that's what I chose. Janice also wanted high-contrast, and the two fabrics I chose didn't produce the contrast I wanted. So I may end up redoing her block.
Now that you know what I've been doing, let's see what you're up to! First, it's time for our weekly feature.
The blocks in the Holly Cottage quilt are embroidered, and oh so cute! Here are blocks 1 to 4. Aren't they wonderful? This quilt is going to be so cute!
