The predominant complimentary colours are red violet and yellow green, and there are also complimentary yellow and violet.
The block is Burgoyne Surrounded from the book Material Obsession 2 by Kathy Doughty and Sarah Fielke. It is the same block that I used to make Amy and David's wedding quilt, my variation of the Charlotte Sometimes quilt pattern form that book, at last year's quilting retreat.
|Burgoyne Surrounded block, in complimentary colours of red violet and yellow green, and violet and yellow - in different values of the colours.|
|Hand quilting in the same colours of #8 perle cotton.|
|This is the first colour theory mini quilt that I made at Thetis. The block is Garden Paths by Sarah Fielke from her book Little Quilts that she wrote with Amy Lobsiger. The colours are analogous, blue green with green and blue, in different values, then hand quilted with #8 perle cotton in complimentary colours of red and orange.|
