Hi, I’m back.
Ok, so, at first I was thinking about taking all those fancy fabrics & doing a sort of undulating striped patchwork piece, meant to be wave-esque. But, you know, slippery.
That was my best idea, though, until the image of concentric ripples, like when you drip water into a puddle, popped into my head.
I thought it would be a nice way to manage the gradations of color you sent, plus it had the added benefit of making use of wonder under instead of actual piecing, so I was all for it.
So I organized the colors, then cut some wonky circles. After fusing my pieces, I stitched around each one with some metallic aqua thread I had on hand. And that was it.
On the one hand, it sort of reminds me of an egg (if the white fabric was in the shape of a slice of bread, it would look very much like my daughter’s lunch today), but on the other hand, it’s also sort of like a lily pad, which is also watery, right?, & mostly it feels very clean & simple & unfussy to me.
