Opposite Pairs (or Courthouse Steps) using thick and thin strips
Spiral method using thick strips on two sides and thin strips on the other two sides.
Looking back at previous chapters, I realised that I probably ought to experiment with tonal graduation, so I attempted this with the 'thick and thin spiral' method above, and the 'v' formation block (2051). Guaging tonal values of some patterns and prints was much more difficult than I anticipated, even with 'squinty eyes'!!!
Opposite Pairs (Courthouse Steps)
I bleached, printed and stitched some of my purchased fabrics to disguise the obvious prints.
I don't think I'll make a quilter! Some of the blocks were quite laborious and boring! Life became much more interesting though, when I started to use some of my own printed and dyed fabrics. The blocks seemed to come alive, particularly with the slight 'black & white' colour variations (ie., blue & brown!)
