Module 2 Colour - Sample 6 Clamshell

For this sample I used analogous colours - colours which are next to each other on the colour wheel. This parrot that I found was ideal.

The shape of the parrot's feathers look very much like the clamshell pattern.

The clamshell sample is not as big as it was going to be - it wasn't just that I ran out of time but I did find it rather tedious. The yellow and pale green fabrics are my own hand dyed fabrics.

The sample was made using rectangles with a curved top. The rectangles were machined pieced partially up the sides and then the tops were tacked onto a curved paper piece. Each row was then appliqued on to the row above. The whole thing was started with a row of rectangles.
