|Arranging the color strips was easy. There are a couple of violets, blueish and reddish not seen on the right end. They were already stitched (see below) when I decided to photograph the simple process.|
|Here are the two violets stacked on a foundation of yellow. |
The foundation fabric will never show.
In this case the fabrics do not have a right and wrong side. If I were using fabrics that did they would be stacked right sides together and stitched.
|Press the stitching line first to "set the stitches", then press the end strip away from the other strip.|
|Rotate the piece 180 degrees and start stitching one strip at a time, pressing as before, working across the foundation fabric.|
|Here it is all sewn, pressed, and trimmed around the perimeter.|
|The reverse side.|
|The completed foundation pieced portion stitched all around to another layer of fabric (not shown) right sides together.|
|Cut an opening in the back.|
|Turn right side out through the slash in the back.|
|Push out the corners and press. |
No need to close the slash because it will be hidden once attached to the card.
|Another orientation…and I really like this one too.|
|Yet another way to look at the composition of color strips. The dark at the top seems a bit heavy.|
|One final orientation for the textile "rainbow".|
