I have barely had time to sew but needed to do something creative, so I decided to take a string piece that has been sitting around for yonks and give it the light of day. As usual, it had been an experiment:an idea I thought (at the time) was worth pursuing. This one didn't work very well and when I dragged it out this morning and took a photo, I knew it was due for triage.
I trimmed all the blocks to the same size (5") and tried another arrangement without sewing them together.
Better, but not much. The blocks were too big, clunky, and close together. They needed more space around them but I had no more of them and wasn't about to make additionalones. Other fish to fry!!
Down they came. Then I wondered what if I put space between the small units and played with a sort-of alternate grid? I arranged and rearranged, and here is what is on my wall now. I still needs more negative space around it, but basically, it's done. I think I'll stick a fork in it. What do you think?
Of course, once I sew the pieces together the whole thing will get smaller and may change a bit - but that's okay. It can't be worse than the first version! But I think I may let it percolate for another day, just in case.
