More Wavelength

I made more of the limey green blocks and got them up on the wall.  I knew I'd have to make more orange blocks, so I put up some old yellow ones as placeholders, and put up some dark blue block as placeholders as well. This gave me a sort of guideline as to how I was doing.

To be successful, I believe this quilt needs at least five colors. This one will have Orange, an intense Pink (which is really a light red violet), Red Violet, a Limey Yellow Green, and a dark Blue Blue Green (which is a teal that has more blue in it than green).

When I'm on a roll, I just sew and forget to take pictures. Last night and this morning, I was on a roll.

This is where the quilt is going. It's very much a quilt with a contrast in hot and cold colors. In this case the orange is the only hot color, the yellow green is slightly warm and all the rest are cool.

It's really amazing how the colors change the feel of any of these quilts.

If you'd like to make a scrap slab triangle quilt like this one, get the tutorial at my Etsy shop, here. It's an instant download so be sure to download the file before you exit.

looking wonderful, and my eye goes across then up and down, to find the same colour, it is a winner.

This looks really good. I like the triangles running horizontally. They look like very short tumbling blocks.

I'm glad the two buttery yellow diamonds wandered off. Bright is definitely the word here.
