Two and a Half Times Three

Why ‘Two and a Half Times Three’ I hear you asking?

When I begin a new piece, I decide on a ‘Quilt Block’ as inspiration for the design. For the most part, each piece begins on the base of a 2 x 3 grid of the chosen block. This time around, I was using a smaller piece of paper than usual, so I couldn’t fit 3 blocks across, but I could fit Two and a Half blocks across. When I finished the piece, the first thing I saw was the very distinct 3 Rows. So, it became Two and a Half Times Three.

A bit random, I know, but I like it 🙂

The image to the left shows the block that this piece is based on. I have left the’grid lines’ specifically so that it is easier to see how to draw the block yourself. Please feel free to use the block outline and come up with your own ‘Tangled Line Art’ design:) The two images on the right show a close-up of different sections of the completed design. I hope you find this of interest.

Sometimes when I look at this piece, I can see ‘fishes’ and sometimes I can see ‘flowers’.

Can you see that as well – or is it just me 🙂

An added surprise in the final design is the ‘self border’ created by the ‘leaves and/or fish tails’ depending on your point of view. I like the way the interplay  of the colours has created a subtly ‘darker’ border on the piece.

I hope you enjoy this design 🙂
