Just a note to self...
Building. On my mind, because patchwork is that. But then thinking about building in general. Remembering the reference to the built world in the book, The Inner Studio, by Andrew Levitt. And now trying to understand how to use the past as a foundation instead of trying to just live in it. Let it go to become a kind of sense. Not trying to remember or repeat but allowing the whole of it to just support the becoming. My foundation self. And then a note to that self. silly me
(and a note to you if you are new here, pictures open in new windows so you can look and listen at the same time, just keep an eye on the open tabs up top)
anyway, continuing with the log cabin block
Even the name Log Cabin evokes building. Frame. Holding. Home. Safety.
And actually it was originally designed as a block constructed by foundation patching. I'll try one (or two?) like that.
I've said a lot of this before but saying it again is always new...
So there are 4, not counting the one I already used here. The first 3 , connected with, let's call it a plain seam. The fourth, let's call it an abutted seam, the fold and stitch. There are a few more (one quite personal) that I would like to talk about.
All these seaming techniques can be applied to larger work with a few modifications depending on what you are trying to do. Practicing small builds experience that helps with larger projects. Or the other way around, I guess. It's a circle after all.
