Colorful May Freebie!

Sorry it's been so long since I posted an update...the month of May has flown by! Being the mother of a high school senior about to graduate is sure high intensity!  I finally found some time to stitch up and post my May freebie, so I hope everyone enjoys seeing it!  This one is called the Color Wheel Biscornu. I am still learning the ins and outs of my software and decided an exercise in color theory and selection would be a fun way to learn color picking. I have made it into a one sided biscornu. The back is only the corner motifs as you can see from the pictures. There are 12 colors in my wheel, based on the artist's paint pallet. Red, Blue and Yellow are the primary colors, mixing them in various combinations can give you a rainbow of colors for painting or thread dyeing. Tinting with white or shading with black can also add colors to your range, but I'll save that for another project!  My color choices came down to my own color vision preferences, so feel free to blend your own choices between the red, blue and yellow. This might be fun to stitch out from the center in a spiral using a colorful variegated thread too! The buttons came from the button aisle in my local fabric store, but any sort of button or bead would do. Fabric is a 32ct white opalescent lugana. As always, please respect my copyright and do not share my charts, but link to my blog. Let me know if there are any issues in downloading the patterns. Enjoy!
