Amazing Color: The Beginning
I have begun a BIG project. It is a Needle Delights Original called Amazing Colors. The designer is Kathy Rees. It has a design area of 12″ X 12″. I have framed up a 16″ X 16″ piece of 18ct white canvas. The design can be seen at www.needledelights.com . It is made up of 144 squares, each square is 18 threads X 18 threads. It is one of those projects that I can just sit and stitch. The directions and charts are great. Each square is a project in itself…..so far I have finished 8 squares. As the title suggests it is made up of lots of colors. I am using floss and Weeks Dye Works overdyed floss, just as the chart calls for. NO CHANGES…imagine that 🙂
Squares 1-8 show from right to left.
The color progression is very interesting. Each square has only 2 colors, and one color is carried to the next square with a new addition. Some combinations are ones I wouldn”t think to put together. I am sure there is lots to learn about color in this project.
