ROYGBIV

I was a little apprehensive about trying this pattern. I don't love curves; I don't love templates. But I've really wanted to make a color wheel using both prints and solids to hang in my sewing studio for quite a while. And I just loved this pattern, The Colorist by Lizzy House.

So I dove in, thinking I'll just take it slow, do a bit at a time and before I know it, it'll be done. And guess what - the top is done! I cut it out on Saturday afternoon and sewed it together Sunday afternoon. It went together so quickly and easily. The curves are very gentle and the pattern pieces fit together perfectly.
I had so much fun choosing prints from my stash. The colors are not perfect. I was working with what I had and found myself pretty deficient in true blues. Aqua blues were plentiful, so you'll notice my color wheel leans a little that way.

Red...
Orange...
Yellow...
Green...
Blue...
Indigo...
Violet...
I hope to get it quilted next weekend!
