Color theory homework

I made this quilt to make up for having missed the class exercise on how adjacent colors can influence one's perception of a color. The central rectangle in each column is the same color and size but the background color changes how one might perceive it. (In the image the columns read horizontally while the backgrounds step down.) I showed it in my color theory class last night. The instructor was really excited to see it since it demonstrates several points she's made in the discussions.

Overachieving me - this came out larger than a twin.

Next step is to decide on borders - any thoughts?

Bali Sea Stars from Ballard

Here is the quilt that my quilt group in Ballard made for annual quilt raffle for Phinney Neighborhood Center. It is Bali Sea Stars, from Kim Brackett's Scrap Basket Surprise, by Martingale Press. Because the background fabrics were silver/white instead of beiges, and it doesn't have any browns or oranges, it looks quite a bit different than the FHWA quilt for CFC that Jenny, Jackie and I made. The raffle will be held on Dec 5.
