stitching, quilting, fabric, projects
August issue of Popular Patchwork Magazine is out this Friday 22nd July. I got a bit carried away designing a quilt for it and spent some time researching the colour palette before I started.
I based it on the colours of flags of the world and found out a few interesting facts:
The most used colour is white, followed by red and then blue.
There are MANY different shades of green.
Purple only appears once, in the parrot on the flag of Dominica.
Each Cityscape has a reflection representing fields, lakes and deserts that make up the block.
The design is very simple, you can use a jellyroll if you fancy a different colour scheme and it would make an easy group or bee quilt . Watch out for it in WHSmiths from tomorrow.
By the way, polka dots don’t appear on any flag yet, I just couldn’t resist adding some in – within the colour scheme obviously 🙂
