Anyway the task now is to complete the posting of all the 5 module samples before the course starts again in September.
This sample is my take on the traditional nine patch block. I used this photo as my inspiration as it included texture and was also a familiar everyday pattern found on floors.
My collage is made from crisp packets which have been ironed under baking parchment to make them go all crinkly. I cut them into squares and the black lines were done with very thick fabric paint.
For the sample I did what DH is always accusing me of - taking perfectly good fabric, cutting it into pieces and sewing it together! Yes this is all the same fabric! The black lines were applied again using fabric paint. The whole thing was then free machine quilted with a meandering line.
It gave the effect I was looking for but again is rather drab for my tastes!
