WIP Wednesday: A New Project

All month I've worked on UFOs, BOMs, and samples.  I decided to reward myself today by starting something new!

And what would that "something new" be?  Jamie's "Brick Road Sew Along."

I have a lovely stack of Free Spirit solids that I bought from Amy Burg Gibson.  She is using them for her Sugar Block Club; however, I am using Bonnie and Camille's Vintage Modern for my blocks.  Soooo, here are my colors for the Brick Road:

Using my color wheel, I started selecting complementary colors.

The true complement to bright orange is bright blue, but it looks too much like Boise State University Broncos.  So the first block I chose was purple and orange:



When I edited the Summer School catalog at Pacific Lutheran University, these were the first colors I chose for the catalog cover:

The next year, I chose:

I have 45 bricks to choose, so this is going to take some time.

  1. Love these strong colours & the contrasts. I'm sure you are having fun matching them up! I would probably get to the end and realise I had all shades of one colour left...
    I have just finished my April UFO - email to do shortly!

  2. Wow, that sure looks like a lot of fun!

  3. I was able to finish my April UFO before leaving for a family reunion - yeah! And managed to quilt another photo quilt.

  4. Excellent post however I was wondering if you could
    write a litte more on this subject? I'd be very thankful if you could elaborate a little bit further. Appreciate it!
