- size: 18x18
- colors: 50% to match three paint chips, and
- theme: three.
Fabrics to match. In keeping with the theme, I'm using a 3x3 format - aka 9-patch.
The number "3" makes a great shape. I selected a font, printed it large, enlarged it further on the copier, then cropped and traced for interesting mix of related shapes and positive/negative spaces:
Then the fun part - arranging the squares in a 3 x3 format. This is similar to an exercise in the June shapes workshop with Terry Jarrard-Dimond posted here and here. From the trimmed layers, I made a polar twin 3x3 and arranged it in the same order:
|arrangements v1, polar twin on left|
|arrangement v2, related but not twins|
