Travelogue and more from Terificreations's Weblog

Before I get to the long overdue Travelogue I’m going to share something really exciting but I can only share part of it. Last night I received an image of the front cover of my book from the my Book Designer at C&T. You can understand why I’m exciting, why this finally feels so real.… Continue reading Travelogue and more

Enhance Your Next Project with a Hint of Red from The Cutting Table Quilt Blog - A Blog for Quilters by Quilters

You know it’s fall when the scenery changes from green to brown with vibrant hints of red. When walking along a pond bank, you can’t see much under the waters, but you can always catch a glimpse of the red koi fish. The red line of a rainbow is always the first to draw in your attention and there are many kinds of fruit trees, but only the splotches of red in an apple tree are able to be spotted from afar.

Red is a color of intensity. It symbolizes passion, love, strength, energy, and desire. Make simple ...

Color Theory from Brown Bird Designs Quilts

Picking out fabrics for a quilt is my absolute favorite part of quilting. I would love to work at a quilt shop!! Helping other people pick out fabric on a daily basis would be so much fun. I love all the different values of color. My favorite days are rainy days; and you might be asking, why are we talking about weather? The reason why I love rainy days is because the colors outside are more saturated. Everything is vibrant and beautiful! Unlike sunny days where colors are washed out or even blown out. Let’s take a moment to ...

Oh Happy Day! from My Quilt Infatuation

Today is the day!  I worked hard yesterday to finish up the center piece for my color wheel wall just so that I could share the finish with you at today's party.  I love it SO much.


I know it's hard to tell in the photo, but these minis take up the entire wall (each one measures 24 inches square).  If you look back at the photo of the original wall, you will see that the thermostat is not centered.  It was only about five inches to the left of center, but that was enough to throw a ...

Moving Right Along and NTT from My Quilt Infatuation

Oh, this color wheel project is so much fun!  In the past week, I've finished two more minis, and pulled scraps for the next color. I have some secret sewing with deadlines fast approaching, so I've had to take a little break from these, but I can't wait to get back to them.


This orange quilt is called Ember.  The colors dance like glimmering fire, or more specifically, like the glowing wood below the flames, and even though it moves from light to dark like the others, it is slightly different.  Since I almost never use the ...

Mixed Feelings from Sew Preeti Quilts

A Colorwash quilt is one in which the placement of colored squares mimics the color wheel with the lightest area near the center and darkest areas in the corners.

On a cloudy morning

One thing is obvious - The gradual transition from almost white (in or near the center) to almost black (at the edges/corners) is the essence of making such a quilt.

But everything else is subjective.

Colorwash Layout (almost)

The Colorwash 360 class taught by Wanda Hanson of Exuberant Color came with many organizing tips and lots of guidelines were provided but most of the actual design process ...

I've got the Color Wheel Blues... from Humble Quilts

I didn't want to give you the impression my sewing room is without blues! I have a few!! But they tend to run kind of muddy and muted.

 The first place I looked was my smallish tote of solids. Nope!
Then I have a little bit bigger tote of my bright, clear fabrics. I only found a few small pieces of blue. That was where I stopped on Monday's post. 

I took my "Color Wheel" fabrics outside today so you could get a better look. I found two blues that I thought would work. I also wanted you ...

Color Wheel Conundrum from Humble Quilts

 I'm preparing for my class with Maria Shell. We are supposed to bring twelve to twenty-four or more FQs or similarly sized pcs representing the color wheel.
Because she works with solids I thought I'd start there first. Unfortunately I do not have one blue solid! 
So, I started digging around my sewing room and found these little swatches by Clothworks "American Made Brand" (here you go if you are looking for truly American made goods!) 
This seemed like a pretty good representation of swatches for the color wheel.

So, I dug a little more and used ...

Quilts Speak from Terificreations's Weblog

As I worked on this Impractical Color wheel I learned a little something. Giving the motifs a little room to breathe, at least visually, allows the color to speak, and the piece looks a little less crowded. The transition from red to orange is visually tight, reading as a bit overwhelming. The transitions after that… Continue reading Quilts Speak

Color Wheel from Terificreations's Weblog

I like color. A lot. I like how color plays. I like how color sings. I like how color behaves, misbehaves, swirls, whirls, blends, hides, shows off and generally is itself. Joen Wolfrom appeared on Simply Quilts some long time ago, talking about color. She talked about the 3-in-1 color tool, how it’s used in… Continue reading Color Wheel

Inspired by from Terificreations's Weblog

Stitching on Brain Dump: Stitch the Scary Stuff in Your Brain (alternately known as The Impractical Color Wheel) continued over the weekend with Yellow! Oh Yellow is a happy color that brings much angst to many a quilter. It’s warm and demands attention like the sun. There is actually more stitching, however in a desire … Continue reading Inspired by

Brain Dump: Stitch the Scary Stuff in Your Brain from Terificreations's Weblog

So here’s a bit o’progress on one sample for the aforementioned class (title). Opening the drawers of the thread chest and grabbing as many different reds as I could find to begin stitching. The cool this is after collecting thread for a few years I have a multitude of reds to choose from. Then again … Continue reading Brain Dump: Stitch the Scary Stuff in Your Brain

Oh Color Me Happy from Terificreations's Weblog

Way back when, not so very long ago, in something that seems a whole other lifetime ago I started making an artistic color wheel. It all started when I was writing a book on how I use color, then life got in the way, the wind got knocked out of my sails, the book got … Continue reading Oh Color Me Happy

braid quilt and colour wheel (sort of!) from Charm About You


Last weekend I was on Sewing Quarter, using fun shapes and tools to create two small quilts - one of which used a bit of artistic licence! 


The first is this 'Braid' baby quilt, using inspiration from Carolyn Forster's book One Patch Quilts. It's a clever book that explores quilts made from a single repeating shape and is perfect for sparking ideas and playing with shapes. I used Scandi Basics by Makower and a solid red to make a striking repeat. This curved stitch has become one of my favourites for quilting. I used grey and red thread alternately ...
