After a journey through the color wheel, the blocks where joined then backed and bordered in black.

When joining the blocks I began with color yellow in the upper left hand corner. Working through the color wheel I ended with yellow green in the lower right. Below are the individual blocks shown in the order they were placed in the finished quilt. While joining the blocks together I felt some additional embellishing was needed. Some blocks had quite a bit added as seen in the finished quilt.

I hope this quilt will inspire you to work with color making your own block, quilt or other project. Then share your pictures with us in the CQMagOnline Readers Showcase.


The author and quilt maker is not an expert in color. She has received several classes in color theory and relied heavily on her library of crazy quilt experts who address color theory in their books and articles.


Of particular value was the book on color by Susan McKelvey. In 1997, the author attended classes in color theory taught by Ms McKelvey at the Sewing and Crafts Exposition in Orlando. Her book, used for resource material, is as follows:

McKelvey, Susan. Color for Quilters II. Wallflower Designs, Millersville, MD 21108. 1993.
ISBN# 0-9639963-0-4
