I don't do primary colours!! At least that was my story before becoming a member of Stitch 12 when Debra suggested we use the colour wheel with red as January. How could I possibly do red, so to soften the blow I decided upon a triadic color scheme, February being orange-red with green and blue. I am using in my blocks mainly batiks and hand dyed fabrics (supplied by a member of my sewing group who says I am her best customer!).
I loved the centre fabric which contained all my February colours, but what to do with it. I really love following the patterns of fabrics and as I couldn't think of anything else that is what I have done.
February for Stitch 12 included french knots and January was straight stitches so I combined the two, you will see I got a bit carried away.
