Sunday Serendipity – Sound the Trumpets!

Well, maybe it isn’t that exciting.  Just one piece to show you today, but there were a couple of new ideas at least.

P9160025I started out by adding additional triangles/points along the diagonal seams.  Actually, this is a pretty interesting block already.  But there’s more.

P9160026 With the triangles opened out, you can see that the light ones are pointed out and the brown ones are pointed in.  Looks different, huh?  But wait . . .

P9160027 I have to roll the edges to get something really interesting.  And . . .

P9160028I am adding a yellow insert.  Only got three done with the afternoon’s typical interruptions, but  this is looking more interesting all the time.  I really like how those stripes work when rolled back.

P9160029Here’s a close-up of one of the inserts.  It takes a little while to stitch down that tiny rolled edge.  Pretty fiddly work! 

There are still some things to try with the trumpets, but I think I’ll move ahead to the next shape.  Maybe I’ll come back to these before we’re done.  There’s soooo much to do with this shape!

What I would give to be a fly on your wall, watching you work on all these neat projects. You are so adventurous with paper and fabric!
