Color Games

Last January my guild did the "Color Games" exercise from the May/June 2001 issue of Quiltmaker magazine. It was a lot of fun! The basic idea is you divide into small groups and each group picks a color. My group chose orange - the fabric used in the setting squares of the sashing. Each of the nine blocks represent a different colorway - monochromatic, complementary, analogous, ... - based on your groups chosen color. And you must use your chosen fabric in every block. We all had our color wheels out, traded fabric to get the just right shade of whatever we needed, and had a fun afternoon.

I love the way you use orange in this quilt -- it really pops, but is not overwhelming. Wonderful!!!
