|These four all have potential crossing the Kona snow background and the pieced lines.|
|It is a good idea to spread your thread choices across the surface to allow you to make a decision with some basis.|
|Cool wave opportunities rev up the imagination.|
So I tried it out on a plain quilt sandwich. All along I am thinking too much thread and too many lines for my current project. But the inspiration moves me forward.
|It starts out simply enough, and I stay on track at first.|
|The intersecting lines and spaces are intriguing.|
|But then I lose my concept and stray from what I learned in the drawing.|
The crossover point is important to keep consistent.
|The wave is kind of lost, but it is a learning experience.|
|So with nothing to lose, I started adding lines below then|
above the original set.
|Lots of movement, but not believable as waves. Twisting yes, wave action no.|
The Wave quilt is already about lines of waves. The blocks are simple and there is a relatively large amount of negative space. So I am heading back to simple lines of quilting. I'm hopeful the experimentation today will show up somewhere else before long. The practice and exploration has my mind hopping with ideas.
Till next Tuesday.
