Downscale

I took “Jade”, a large piece, to my crit group. One of our members suggested that it might be interesting to see this technique in a smaller scale.

I thought so, too. I’d been thinking that these pieces were so large, it would be good to try a smaller size piece. How would the shattered image work when the piece was smaller? I reduced the scale of the basic image and took sections – two different sections. The original image was 15 inches wide; the new sections were only 5 inches. Then I ordered some fabric from Spoonflower.

Using prints from the left side of the segments above, I cut squares and sewed them together. A border of stripes, using the colors of the print, was added. Here is the small piece, about 15” wide. (The first piece, Jade, was 61” wide.)

I’ve order a lot of fabric (miscalculation). So I have fabric enough to do some more small pieces. Added to the “to-do” list.
