I had been doing my small color experiments with different color combinations. For the next one I decided to stick with the same color family. I had an overdye that ranged from bright red to white with various hues between. I added maroon, magenta and some pinks. While I stitched the outside border and inner cross the colors reminded me of Valentines Day so I changed the inner shape to be a heart.
What fun! The idea also worked for monochromatic color schemes. I immediately started thinking of other shapes and colors I could do the same thing with. They are all still ideas in my head, but I did make some more hearts with different colors and talked a friend into doing some.
The pattern makes a cute valenitnes day cards. This pattern is for sale at patternsonline.com.
