Is this fabulous? Or is this fabulous? I think it's fabulous. Look at the luminosity in this piece! I intended this to be a vertical wall hanging for my studio - what a great lesson it is in the color wheel and values. But when I showed this to Janet, my ortho-bionomy massage therapist, she immediately saw it as a horizontal wall hanging for above her Prairie-style headboard. So a picture of this piece in situ will follow at some point. It is 22" x 48".
One of the reasons I wanted to make this Jinny Beyer pattern is because my sense of color is emerging. While I'm getting better, I truly do have to refer to the color wheel hanging in my studio. The Jinny Beyer Studio sells these little pre-cut fabrics - there are 150 in the above wall hanging - for $12.50 each. Each swatch is 1.25" by 3.5". And I have just ordered three more sets of these swatches. I'm eager to work with these fabrics again and perhaps experiment with different borders and bindings.
