I finished a really big assignment and rewarded myself with some fun: Mary Ann's latest class, SEWN. I started watching the videos last night and fell instantly in love. I began the first assignment, searching for patterns and making my own. Of course, patterns are everywhere once you start looking. While at my son's baseball game I found these:
A quick glance around the house finds an old quilt with so many patterns:
A child's chair and rug in the background:
And another rug in the kitchen as well as the wallpaper on the island piece:
And a platter on the counter:
My favorite part of it is this edge, so beautiful:
So I got started as instructed, big and loose:
And didn't stop for a couple hours:
Patterns from big to small, using paints, pens, stamps, inks, markers...
a plethora of pattern:
Makes my heart beat faster. Next up, project 1!
