Blocks 94 and 95 out of 368
Still thinking texture and layers, This time I decided to play with some knits. I took a jersey fabric from a recycled t-shirt. Considering the day-glow orange it was definitely time to recycle that shirt!
Then I played with backgrounds. Much more contrast going on here. On block 94 I went with a dark brown and bright teal print. Playing with quilting lines and geometric shapes I did a few lines of horizontal stitching and then a section on the diagonal. I love how the jersey peels back from the fabric on the horizontal quilting. But I found by not following the stretch of the fabric I did not get that peel effect on the diagonal cuts. For the diagonal lines I tried shredding the edges to give a feathery look. I love the resulting texture!
On block 95 I chose a bright blue background print. I kept to horizontal cuts, but added a few lines of sewing to give it geometric 'sections'. While the resulting K shape was unintended I do love the effect. The peel of the horizontal lines is really interesting and very 'organic'. straight lines yield a oval shape. Fun!
