I love paper piecing. That being said, I’ve been having a hard time starting the paper-pieced stars for the summer sampler because I need to change my needle. Silly, isn’t it. Let me tell you about how I chose the colors for these blocks.
For week 3 I didn’t actually use my color theory but instead thought about that the values. Gold for the ring to make it stand out and grey and white for a two-tone effect in the center. I was also happy to be able to use blue– I’m a little worried about having contrast between the medium blue and the dark blue background when I use it but honestly, I don’t think I need to worry about it.
Week four the Rosetta Star, with a name like that I knew I needed to use a text fabric in the middle so this Madrona Road memoir is the perfect choice.
For week five I went with the straight analogous color scheme in in warm colors.. I like how it turned out. For week six I think I’ll use a analogous color scheme in cool colors. This one is in progress..I hope I can catch up soon!
What are you sewing at the moment? Do you like to play with each block or would you rather have your colours planned out ahead of time?
