Here’s a drawing of my next project, a small quilt I call “Birds of a Feather” for obvious reasons.
This pattern is a tessellation, a single shape that fits with itself to cover a surface without gaps or overlaps. The red and tan “birds” alternate on a dark/light blue background.
If you rotate the piece upside down, the dark/light blue shapes turn into birds on a red and tan background! I may have to attach a hanging sleeve on both ends to take advantage of that!
I’m looking forward to working on this piece. I will make it entirely of silk neckties formerly worn by The Very Reverend Michael P.G.G. Randolph (deceased), an Episcopal priest I knew and loved.
So far, I’ve cut open and gutted the ties, and now I’m attaching a sheer fusible interfacing for stability (photos to follow).
Stay tuned . . .
