Second Stage - Fabric Samples
I don't know whether it was the mood I was in or the technique itself, but I found log cabin terribly tedious and boring to do. I couldn't come up with anything interesting to do with it. I did a few samples, but I don't really like them. Patchwork is something I don't really like so I have struggled with this chapter. I found my interest increase when I started on the Seminole work. I loved the surprise element of it. I haven't done many samples yet, but I'll carry on with this, incorporating the ideas of decorating seams from the next chapter.
B - Seminole
|2.7.B6 "right" side|
|2.7.B7 the "right" side|
|2.7.B7 the reverse side|
- Interpret the marks on the light coloured squares in 2.7.B7 in stitch instead of print
- Try some samples with some seams going one way, some the other
- Interpret my "squiggly lines with circles" from my original sea anemone drawing using seminole patchwork for the squiggly lines (as shown in 2.7.B5 and 2.7.B6) with stitch for the circles
- Try combining seminole for the squiggly lines with yo-yo patchwork for the circles.
These ideas should keep me busy for a while. Watch this space ...
