These four blocks were inspired by fabric. The embroidered and embellished moody blue green I dyed and spoke of irises. Next the colors from the piece used as overall background set the palette. I will line the back of this square when finished with the wool as an example. The center panel of the striped piece is a wide, loose trim which I hooked an aqua and pink line through to anchor the fabric to backing. Then I hooked through the edges and mimicked the patterning by hooking and braiding. The last one was designed based on the striped fabric in center square. I used high contrast to reproduce the stripes.
On to May journaling, the trees are bursting into bud and each migrating bird upon arrival is adding their music to the orchestra. Sounds, sights and memories emerging as subjects.
