I recently designed and made a throw from recycled blue jeans and silk neckties. I cut the jeans into squares and appliqued silk shapes on them before sewing the squares together. The designs were inspired by a board game.
I liked it so much, I made another.
I made four more patches.
I rotated the patches for the next block and came up with different possibilities.
Now that’s interesting, I thought. I applied the operations of symmetry to the patch and increased its potential.
I made more.
I put together what I had so far . . .
I couldn’t stop after that.
I call the piece “All Roads Lead Somewhere.”
I have put together some of the basic templates in a document, All Roads Lead Somewhere, that you can download.
I will write about the templates in the coming weeks, and show you what I’m doing with them.
