This is part of a series that Sandy over at Quilting for the Rest of Us is doing. Wow, just when I thought there was nothing else you could do with analogous colors on the color wheel, Sandy decides it is time they play with friends.
“Fiveses with a friend” she calls it. Week five, hmm I wonder if that was intentional. So who are the “five” and where does the “friend” come in….you take 5 colors next to each other on the color wheel and then go invite a friend opposite all your buddies. In this case the 5 buddies are blue, blue-green, green, yellow-green, and yellow. They decided to invite red to their party.
Here is another party starting at the opposite end of the color wheel with red, red-orange, orange, yellow -orange and yellow and they invite blue to their party.
In this final party we have blue-green, blue, blue-violet, violet, and red-violet and orange is invited to the party.
I’m not a party fan myself as I don’t like crowds and for those of you that don’t know me, my definition of a crowd is more than 2 – me and you. 🙂 However I can see how any of these combinations may work with the right pattern.
Now for a dilemma, my vacation is next week and we are visiting my daughter and family (I can’t wait). However, I will miss next weeks color play unless I can find a good excuse to go to a fabric store so I can pull bolts of fabric off the shelves and go crazy with a camera with a possible purchase or two.
Not sure my family will understand, so any comments to help my cause would be appreciated as I speak a foreign language when it comes to fabric and quilting.
Come join the party, for even this non-crowd, non-party person is enjoying this weekly gathering.
Enjoy the journey, Jackie
