I started by using paper samples to practice more design ideas by arranging, cutting up and rearranging various tonal patterns before going onto fabric samples in the second half of the chapter.
This is the beginning of a fabric sample using the stack and whack method starting with 4 layers of patterned fabrics
Patterned pieces arranged to develop a counter change
Stitched using some forward facing seams
I used a paper pattern to play with cutting and re-arranging the pattern
The finished sample, cut and re-arranged with lace / triangular snippets inserted into two parallel seams; really pleased with this.
This is based on paper sample 20
Sample cut and re-arranged
Finished sample. I wanted to see what would happen if I inserted strips of net into the seams and then cut, rearranged and stitched again to see the effects.
This is based on the mosaic pattern we made in chapter 10 but this time using patterned fabrics.
!st stages produced using the Fibonacci Sequence described in Chapter 10 to produce top, middle and lower pieces with increasing piecing and blending of tonal qualities
I wanted to see what would happen if I cut the lower piece
Finished sample - 3 sections stitched together [needed a big machine needle  to manage the bulk!
I was in Glasgow recently and was struck by the patterning in this view of the Grand Central Station….
