We should be having our meeting tonight, so it's time to reveal what we have done. We were to choose something that we had done in the last 2 years as our inspiration and starting point.
I chose my Marimekko project as my first one in the series.
|Series 1, no. 1|
For my second in the series, I made the background of black and white stripes and added some more colour to the circles.
|Series 1, no.2|
For my third one I made the background strips much narrower and changed the colour palette of the circles.
|Series 1, no.3|
The narrower stripes were much harder to sew and press but I like the effect. I really love the circle colours. I don't think I have used those colours before and they feel so fresh and modern.
I put the little A3 quilts side by side to get a better idea of the series.
We only have to do 3 in the first series, although we could continue on if we wanted. I suppose I could do circles all year and my designing skills would really expand if I did. Mmm, I actually have no idea what I would do next if I were to make another.
Would I have to keep doing black and white backgrounds or could I introduce some colour?
My son Cam is out of his 14 days isolation and the police came to the door last Thursday to make sure that he was at home and doing the right thing.
I am keeping busy doing lots of sewing plus I have signed up for 4 online courses and I am madly trying to keep up with them all. I am actually only keeping up with 3 and have left the portrait drawing class for later.
I wonder why I always over commit myself? So, even though all my activities are cancelled and I am missing having my visits with the grandchildren, I am still super busy!!
I'll write more about my online courses in another post.
Bye for now,
