Bloggers' Quilt Festival - Color Wheel

Amy's Creative Side

I'm happy to be linking up to the spring Bloggers' Quilt Festival sponsored by Amy's Creative Side. There are so many beautiful quilts linked up. There's a lot of very creative quilters out there that have been very busy.


I'm excited to finally show my color wheel quilt. I have loved this quilt from the moment I saw it in Joelle Hoverson's book and knew I wanted to make one. I enjoyed every single step in the process of making the top. My eyes just love to follow the colors around the circle and my brain can't help but chant "Red Orange Yellow Green Blue Indigo Violet" over and over as I complete the circle. Almost like I'm still checking to make sure I have the colors in the correct order.


I made the top a few months ago but I just quilted it this weekend and attached the binding yesterday. At first I was very intimidated by the actual quilting of this quilt. I was afraid I might not do it right and then I would mess it all up. I learned that it I shouldn't have been scared and I shouldn't have put it off for so long.


It is such a great feeling to be finished and know that I sewed every inch of it all by myself. This one is a keeper for me, myself and I. I might let my family touch it though - if they are lucky. Actually, I might find a place to hang it on a wall in my house. I've never been one to want to hang a quilt on the wall but this might just be a first.

You must have a great stash of fabrics to get all the right colors ;) The quilting really adds to the piece. Beautiful.

This is lovely. My son saw one very like this (or it could have been yours) on tumblr and is begging me to make him one. He's 15 so it will have to be enormous. Yours is so lovely that maybe I just might have to relent and make it for him.

Love it. I made one of these as a tree skirt and I have multi colored ornaments on the tree so it looks really fun. You should post it on Flickr's Rainbow Patchwork Group: http://www.flickr.com/groups/1491268@N24/pool/
