Color Wheel Study
Join EBHQ for a Color Wheel Study!
After 12 months of focusing on one color, we are moving onto using three analogous colors together. Each month a new set of colors will be selected to explore.
We have set some suggestions/goals for each of the monthly piece(s):
You don't need to register. Join in at any time! This exercise may become the beginning of a series. It can be as small as a postcard, 12" x 12", or just a block for a future quilt. Of course, you can make more than one piece on any given month. The piece does not need to be finished/quilted.
TIPS: You could use color cards from any paint store to help with color values and reference. Also, a value matching tool can be of use when evaluating a color range. If you dye your own fabric, you can have even more fun creating a wide range of values.
Below are some video tutorials from YouTube to help you explore the color wheel:
Color Wheel Basics - 7 minutes
Heather Thomas for National Quilters Circle - 9 minutes, 12-color wheel
Janice Ingle of Quilting Digest - 23 minutes, 18-color wheel
Here are some possibilities for how and where to share your color wheel study piece.
