WIP Wednesday - August Color Palette Challenge

OMG!!!  I can't believe the amount of projects that I am juggling right now.......its all good though.

I thought I would get started on my project for this month's Color Palette Challenge at Patchwork Times.  I am glad that I have been able to keep up with all the color challenges for the months of 2012 so far. 

This is an in-progress pic taken with my iPad of my August mini (8x8).  When I saw this month's color palette, I thought that the colors were right for a civil war piece.  I wasn't to keen on making a civil war project since I have been moving more modern, but thought it would be OK for August.  I went to pull colors from my stash, but I didn't get very far.  This circle fabric was sitting on the top of a box and it matched up so perfectly that I knew I had to work with it.

I used some solid color scraps for the circles and thought it looked bland, so I started working with the beads.  So far, so good.  I should be finished with this soon.

Linking up to WIP Wednesday today at Freshly Pieced
