I hope it is the right orange!

After consulting my favourite colour book and going through my favourite Hungarian pattern book I've added this row to Christine's band sampler. It seems to have the right mix of fine lines and blocks of colour to go with the rows above (or below depending on how it is used).

FYI my colour book is "Color Play:Easy Steps to Imaginative Color in Quilts" by Joen Wolfrom. The colour combinations in this book are based on the Ives colour wheel which I find much more pleasing that the usual wheel. The colour combinations are based on nature so the book is filled with photographs of flowers and such, and real quilts, as well as the usual colour palates. I love just looking through the book for inspiration.

Oh Margaret! I'm really thrilled to see what you've done! The colour is just right I think. And your stitching is perfect. Thanks for leaving the gap after KTJ's work, I'll decide what to do there when I get it back to Oz. So nice to see some progress, you must feel a great sense of accomplishment now, very WELL DONE.
Hooroo,
Christine.
