Gift giving season in here and I'm just as stumped as you for what to get everyone on my shopping list. For those of you with quilters on your list I thought I'd try to help you out a bit this week. My Color Wheel Basics fabrics are great gifts, especially when you want to introduce someone to the fun of working with hand dyed fabrics. These are the folks that I had in mind when I created the Color Wheel Basics fabrics.
I started with the Color Wheel Stash Packs in light, medium and dark values. My color wheel is based on the Munsell Color System that has 5 primaries so these Stash Packs have those 5 primaries and 5 secondary colors. The Munsell system, unlike all others that we study, is based on how we perceive color rather than how we create color. These Stash Packs each have 10 fat eighths of fabric, one in each primary and secondary color. They are 20% off every day.
For each of the colors in the Color Wheel there is a coordinating Shades Pack that has 5 fat quarters in 5 shades of each color. These fabric sets are also always 20% off!
Fabric of the Week
The Crayon Box Stash Pack is back in stock just in time to be on sale this week. Crayon Box is 20 fat eighths of fabrics that coordinate with Color Wheel fabrics but with more texture and color blending than in the Basics packs.
In the Crayon Box, each of the 10 Color Wheel colors are represented in 10 streaky fabrics. The other 10 fabrics are mottled blends of adjacent colors. For example, there a mottled version that is a combination of Red-Yellow and Yellow. All of these together would be wonderful in a bright happy quilt with a black or white backgrounds. This Stash Pack has a total of 2.5 yards and is 20% off through Sunday. It's normally $45 but this week it's $36.
I love the Color Wheel fabrics so much that I've made at least 3 quilts with them. The quilt on the left used Color Wheel Stash Packs with a Crayon Box Stash Pack. The one on the right used only the Color Wheel Stash Pack (in fat quarters).
