Yesterday I finished 4.6.7c aka The Professor’s Choice, finish #6 within two weeks. A new personal record, courtesy of my boss who was away on holiday. 😉 It will get less busy at the UFO Garage from now on until I’m having some time off myself.
Now let’s take a look at what the Professor chose. The old name, 4.6.7c, came from my favorite book, Tilings and Patterns by Grünbaum/Shephard. It was simply the name of the pattern in a list which I used for the working title.
Some of the batik fabrics came from The Pile (formerly known as The Pile of Uglies). I liked how the colours went together, but somehow the colour scheme was too dark. So I added some fabrics from The Stash until I had eight dark and light pairs. The blocks are made of four tiles, each one 5 x 5 cms/2″ square which makes the block 10 x 10 cms/4″ square. A narrow dark brown border is keeping everything together, I used the same fabric for the backing.
Not one of my best pieces from the sewing point of view but now that it’s finished I quite like the design and colours. Maybe I try again later. 🙂
