Remember the fabrics I shared on Wednesday?
Patchwork Times. Even though I haven't made up anything for the previous palettes, I do have plans for them. This month I wanted to play around with improv and not overthinking the design.
Here is where I am as of this afternoon. And please excuse the horrible indoor photo. It's been raining all day. The rain is actually why I am able to work on this today. I need to take some photographs outside for a project for school and overcast will be perfect, but not rain. Tomorrow hopefully.
Up until this point, I was just sewing pieces together into strips. I knew there would be curves because of the angles of the pieces, but not really the more dramatic curves I got here. If I trim them down into straight edges, which was my initial idea before starting, I will lose a lot.
Enter the planning phase of this piece. I am letting it sit until later because I am not sure if I should join them all together, or add another fabric (keeping with the palette inspiration) in between each row. I will be slicing and dicing it up some more, so it won't stay like this. Though I may regret that after I'm done, I want to see how far I can push the process. Sometimes we have to enter an ugly stage to get to a better piece.
