Something fun to try.....


I have been wanting to create this block for some time.  I love each unique version I see.   For mine I decided to follow a traditional color wheel.

I printed my color wheel and used it to select my fabrics
Then got to work paper piecing

using the template found  here, and the great tutorial found here

Now I just need to decide what to do with it, any suggestions???

Oh, one more thing....if you would like to make a block like mine - post a comment including your email so I can contact you and I will send a fabric kit to the first 3 comments.

I would love to make one, but I am not the first three to reply. I think you should make a quilt of this block, with four across and five down. You are so creative, you can think of some gorgeous sashing and a really neat border to finish the quilt off. You are so talented, and I love everything you create! Your store is like cotton candy for the mind, so soothing and satisfying!!!
