Twelve Days color themes emerging


Apparently I love oranges, maroons, blues and pinks together. It's probably why I end up with one in each pattern sample batch. And why I never seem to give them as gifts. One day I will have a white Christmas tree and these ornaments will rock it. You might think I planned this color theme ahead of time...mmkay sure, let's go with that. I completely and professionally planned it like a forward thinking micro business owner. *coughs*


Oooh. Aquas, mints and greens. This theme is late to the party. I'm diggin it. I need to make it retroactive with the first two ornaments so I have a complete set so far.


And yellows. There's a theme in this grouping somehow. It's not quite as cohesive. More yellows will be in the future. I need to bring back that lighter yellow like on the Partridge and Pear. It's got zing. *snapping fingers*

I can't get as excited about traditional red and green combos but I do think a whole set done in whites and ivories would be so pretty. Hey, one of you guys do that! And send me pictures. That's what's so great about DIY and digital patterns. You can make whatever color combos float your boat.

    1. Beth, I do tend to gravitate toward the secondary palette and not the primary...that's just me.

  4. I would love an ivory set! Have to try that when I get going on my Christmas crafts. 'Till then, I'm partial to your lighter yellow ornaments. And a set with red and green used sparingly, as accents, could be quite pretty. So many choices! So much variation! Wonderful!!

  6. Gorgeous, as usual. I am amazed at your focus. I can hardly finish one simple project like a Wiksten tank and you've stuck with these for years. Bravo, my friend. (clap clap clap)

    1. Robyn, I owe it all to you! So many of my patterns start with the internal question "I wonder what I can make for Robyn?". To be honest, I'm pretty astounded at my focus also. I WILL FINISH THIS SERIES AND I WILL LOVE IT.

  7. I love seeing your color groupings!

    I was noticing that there isn't much purple in my felt collection for making these ornaments so I thought I might try incorporating that next.

    I have been wanting to try an ivory and light peach combo on a Snowbird sometime. Creamsicle? Ha ha!

  8. Gorgeous Larissa I have begun making these for my Church Mice Quilting Group for Christmas. Will add to the fun I arrange. Will definitely need the rest of the 12 days
