Calliope or simply “Callie” was born from an idea I had in August 2017 to make a floral hexagon with thin petals and an ornate texture. At that time I was working with my Fresh Earth palette and it was really well received, so I decided to start with that color scheme for the piece. Some color-swapping and adding tones, and the finished color combo was decided.
The way I used the colors in the piece is a bit different from most of my projects! I laid out the 9 colors in a circle in the order that most pleased me. Then when I made each motif, I used the colors in the order they appear in the circle.
Of course I can’t totally let go of random… so I did do random motif placement! Satisfying 🙂
And y’all loved it! I got tons of great feedback and it gave me the warm fuzzies.
So the Callie pattern is ready for you all, and I really hope you have a wonderful time creating her.
Any color combo will look stunning, and if you do decide to make Callie, be sure to hashtag #CallieBlanket and #CypressTextiles – this way I can see your works 🙂
