Colour Theory Class Lesson 1

I have taken a Colour Theory Class in a group called stitchMap.

I needed to take this class as I get a bit confused on colours. Its a class on how to use the colours that are available in thread and fabric. I had to list my favourite colour and the colours I would use the most.
The exercise was to collect colours, may that be fabric, floss, beads, buttons, clip colours from magazines, paint samples, etc, a full colour of the rainbow.

Here's my colour choices.

Isn't it weird when putting the blue fabrics altogether, how the dark blue almost looks black.


Look at the 3rd Green Floss (at the top), that one looks kind of blue.

The light yellow when put together with the darker one, has changed to a creamy looking colour.



This is my favourite colours of all, Orange. To me they look so soft, more of a pastel colouring

Red Colour RR, Apple Red

Here is my block before I sent it off to Rebecca.

CQ4Newbies has started another RR, this time it is Red Colour.
The group that I am in is Apple Red.
This is my second time in a RR, and I am feeling somewhat confident.
I added a paisley with chain stitches and then filled it with beads, the swirls are coral stitches and the feather stitches is done with beads.
I am excited in receiving my first block to work on ... can't wait!!!!
