The coming four weeks I am taking an online class with Pamela Allen. And yes, I am addicted to her classes :-). This time the class is all about contrast and the first lesson was about creating a composition using a monochromatic palette. And people who know me, know that I love black and white fabrics and have rather a huge stash of them. I created two quilt tops, one starting from white fabrics and the other one starting from black fabrics. Both tops are around 12"x20". The pictures show the tops with the fabric only glued together:
At the moment I am machine quilting them. For me the fun of using commercial b/w fabrics is to fuzzy cut them in such a way, that you take as much advantage of a design as possible. The flower you see on this detail is made from small circles cut out of fabric:
And this is the picture of the original fabric:
Who would have thought that such a lineair fabric could create such organic looking flowers.
