The Art of Choosing is a series discussing fabric, color, and the fabric selection process! For past posts, click here.
The Color Wheel
Those three color groups make up the color wheel! Now, I know that color in general and the color wheel can be a little intimidated, so to make it a little easier, I combed the Kona solid colors and put together a "Kona Color Wheel" using twelve Kona colors! Hopefully this will give a bit of a reference point when you're thinking about the color wheel.

Circle of Geese tutorial (scaled up the pattern a bit!). It's a paper pieced block, which I was a little nervous about, but it came together really easily. I wanted to be able to showcase the colors in a color wheel type format, but in a slightly different way I like that you still get a color wheel sense, but it's flying geese instead!
flickr group! :)
Above is my color wheel! I had a lot of fun looking through my stash for all these pretty fabrics! I'm not going to lie, I struggled with purple a little! I have a lot of true purple and red-purple but virtually no blue-purple! Shall have to add that color to my shopping list! For more information on these fabrics, click the photo to be taken over to flickr!
