2020 - Color Wheel challenge

Make a table runner or table topper with a maximum perimeter of 120 inches.  You may choose any pattern, or design, or shape. 

Example shapes that fit the perimeter limit, include, but are not limited to...

  • Circle with 38” diameter

  • Rectangles: 12” x 48”, 24” x 36”, 18” x 40”

  • 30” square

  • Octagon, hexagon, ....


The challenge is to break out of your color rut !


Draw a slice of the color wheel. Use this as your starting color and choose one of the following color wheel combinations

  • 1 color only (Monochromatic) — use variations of the color in the slice

  • 2 complementary colors — use the color you drew and the color directly opposite it on the color wheel

  • 3 analogous colors — use the color you drew and the colors on either side
