So yes, I will try this. (from this post) Maybe 9 times (ways). If I can make some time. For now, not too big.
It is possible to easily make patchwork from any drawing, especially one with straight(ish) lines.
I could just draw this again on any sized paper. Like this exactly or just a fresh drawing.
I think this time, when time seems short, I will just enlarge the drawing and print it out. Let me start there.
So I did that.
For scale and feel.
And a few words that come as they do. Or not.
One thing leads to another
Just Going, can just be thinking sometimes. Or imagining. 9 ways is a lot. What if I keep going now? No matter how long it takes?
I’m having a fiddle with the perspective nine patch. I made the patch 9″ x 9″ and have managed to do the top one in a nine patch too. I’m paper piecing it, so fiddle plus here!
Oh, can’t wait to see! I am framing mine up today,
Can’t wait to see yours Jude. I’ll post a photo when mines finished!
I’m constantly wandering around clicking on this and that and often times I have 15 to 20 of your tabs going at once on my browser! It’s always a pleasant surprise when I come across something new and that happens often (or new to me at the moment). I save my wanderings for just before I fall asleep and dream of all the wonderful things I’ve seen. Thank you!
the magic of a drawing on paper becoming cloth patchwork 9 different ways… and WOVEN 9-patches… YESSSSSS!!!
one thing can always become another
love the hand woven shot cotton for the black and the thin muslin for the white, the subtlety of the edges in the seamed lines, the sense of going in the drawing and how your stitching and use of materials takes you there from this perspective
That shot cotton , i want to live in it. There is a special kind of line in it.
I’ve watched that paperless piecing video many times. That’s how I started making squares. At some point, I decided to hem the squares separately and join them later, so I don’t get the flaps involved. Strip weaving might be an interesting variation to manage the little pieces of the nine-patches.
Yes, a woven version is next I think.
What if I try the weaving version on a very large scale. Like huge.
Wow, you could actually walk into the distance in a huge piece. I think you could weave a rug like this.
Ha, imagine that?
As I was listening, I remembered a technique you showed some years ago…I don’t remember which class…where you sewed a seam on a whole piece of cloth, then cut it so it looked like it had been pieced. I remember that it worked a treat when I tried it.
This piece is very seductive.
Oh yes, faux seaming, let’s bring that back…
I thought of the faux seams as well. They seem perfectly suited to this. What if we baste pieces onto a sketch and then capture the raw edges in the faux seam. Or is that too fussy? 🤔
Anything is worth a try, you never know. And each way has its own look, I love that.
The paper piecing refresher quite helpful especially tackling the star. I forgot bits of your technique. I want to take off on the this road, any road. Anxious to try my own.
Any path might lead you
Before you posted your cloth version I’ve had ideas bouncing around in my head all morning! Can’t wait to try it.
Yay! Maybe we need a gallery here…
That stitched block in perspective look great Jude 👍🏻💙
Looks like a fun one to do👍🏻💙
ha, didn’t think anyone would find this beginning, was just trying a project page, to see if anyone was wandering around. I have been looking at it all cut up, some pieces will be kinda tiny so I will try it fully pieced just to test my skill.
Haha I’ve been tapping your sidebar items and somehow found a new one 😁I kinda like being 1st at something!
I’d like the challenge off piecing a perspective block too 👍🏻
it’s quite a challenge on a small scale, I did some work and I am about to add it here…
i love that you are so curious
