It's good to be home! We did lots of traveling over the holiday weekend, first to Michigan, then to Ohio, and then back to Wisconsin last night. It was wonderful to see everyone! Hope you all had an enjoyable weekend! :)

As always, I was traveling handmade! Put my duffel bag, and many, many bags to good use!

I updated my inspiration board today! It was getting a bit messy. I think I need a bigger one (and more wall space!), I always have leftover goodies to put on it!

I finished stitching my wooden cross-stitch pendant from The Workroom! Went with my go-to colors and a simple design. I'm not much of a jewelry wearer, so I made it into an ornament! It's currently living on my inspiration board! :)

The Art of Choosing: Harmonizing Color Schemes

Wednesday, November 23, 2011


The Art of Choosing is a series discussing fabric, color, and the fabric selection process! For past posts, click here.


As I mentioned in previous Art of Choosing posts, I want to spend the next few weeks talking about different color schemes that can be pulled directly from the color wheel! :)

Harmonizing Color Schemes
Today is all about Harmonizing color schemes! Harmonizing color schemes are super simple but can still have a big impact. They're made of two colors that are right next to each other on the color wheel! So, let's explore the 12 harmonizing color schemes in fabrics!

Red, Red-orange

Now I'd like to share with you a project I made using a Harmonizing color scheme.

Green + Blue-green: I used this great tutorial to make a simple composition notebook cover! If you look through your stash, you'll find that a lot of fabric designs use harmonizing color schemes, which makes your job easier!

Again, if you'd like to pull some harmonizing fabric stacks of your own, or share your harmonizing color projects, feel free to post in the flickr group! Until next week! :)

Happy Sewing!

Note: I created the color wheel graphics myself, so please don't borrow them without crediting me and linking back! Thanks! :)

The Art of Choosing: Split-Complementary Color Schemes

Tuesday, November 22, 2011


The Art of Choosing is a series discussing fabric, color, and the fabric selection process! For past posts, click here.


As I mentioned in the last Art of Choosing post, I want to spend the next few weeks talking about different color schemes that can be pulled directly from the color wheel! :)

Split-Complementary Color Schemes
Today is all about Split-Complementary color schemes! Split-Complementary color schemes are very similar to the Complementary colors schemes that we talked about last time. They're made by taking a single color on the color wheel, looking directly across to it's compliment but using the colors on either side of the compliment. I think (hope!), that will make more sense in the photos below! So, let's explore the 12 split-complementary color schemes in fabrics!

Red, Yellow-green, Blue-green
Red's complement is Green, the two colors on either side of Green are Yellow-green and Blue-green.

Red-orange, Green, Blue
