Contrast - Striped flowers


Contrast - use of black and white, use of vertical and horizontal stripes

I wanted to try out a new idea with my black and white stripes-- flower shapes with tiny flashes of colour together with matching vertical coloured lines of quilting. I have 2 larger pieces in mind that might use these flowers with the colour additions. I am fascinated with the optical illusions one can produce with stripes and small additions of colour.

Now for confession time- I cut my original piece of striped fabric as a 12 inch square intending to cut it back to a 10 inch square. Probably harking back to another challenge I was involved in. However I was able to salvage an 11 inch finished piece... not the 12 inch required for this group.

  1. A fascinating piece. I really like the small touches of colour as well as those small circles of patterned fabric at the centre of each flower.

  4. This is great! Reminds me of those pages you stare at and a picture of some kind appears. This time it is flowers. And the little splashes of color add to it.
