Color Palette

My internet shopping was a success.  Here is the full color palette for my own "Pattern Play" project, the braid-like blocks in the project from American Patchwork & Quilting magazine. 

I am happy with the color selections, at least as they look uncut and fanned out like this.  But after all the agonizing over colors to select, what did I do but forget the white for the blocks.  I buy Kona White and Kona Snow by the bolt and forgot that an earlier project used up all but a little bit of my Kona White.  I think these colors need the brighter white to complement them and balance the gray. 

In the meantime, I'm continuing to work on my double wedding ring project and am having a good time with it.  I'm still piecing the arcs but the pieces are going together perfectly.  I'll have an update pretty soon.

Your colors are fabulous! I have mine out to start cutting, but they're really bright and I like your choices much better!

Lovely . . . it's always so fun to get new colors and spread them all out.
