ISAAC Color Wheel Quilt
Finished size: 48” circle across

Who doesn’t love a color wheel? Making this stunning wall quilt is a great way to practice looking at color as it forces you to organize color by value and hue. If you’re up for a challenge, go for the 72 color color wheel. It uses 6 values each of the 12 steps around a traditional color wheel. For an equally gorgeous but quicker quilt, make the 36 color version. Use your favorite solids, prints, or a combination!

Fun fact: Sir Isaac Newton developed the first color wheel in the mid-1600s, a result of his experiments observing light pass through a prism.

Full size templates, illustrated instructions (including bias binding), color vocabulary, color exercises, encouragement
