(This is another post in our series previewing our NEW eBook- “Rock Star ‘Peace’work”– which will be available soon as a pdf download.)
In our last post in this series, I told you how easy it would be to translate the pieced design we achieved on the exterior of our Quattro sample, to another canvas.
There is one REALLY big difference between this design and the Quattro exterior though… can you detect what it is?
If you look closely at the Quattro exterior, you will see that it was at least a partially symmetrical project, in that one SIDE of the pouch was a mirror-image (that is, exactly the same) of the other. But the center of this table mat is skewed… it’s off center. This design is totally assymmetrical, making each and every pattern piece different from each other.
But here’s the deal… making the little pattern piece segments for this mat was STILL really EASY. The process we used was EXACTLY the same as for the Quattro. Oh sure, the Quattro only had 8 segments and this mat has 16, so it took a little longer, but the PROCESS was still the same.
The good news is, with this process under your belt, you’ll feel confident segmenting & embellishing virtually any project you want, whether in 8, 16 or even 32 segments…well, maybe not 32 segments.
And the great news is, we’re including all of the segmented pattern pieces for this Table Mat and in addition, those of a symmetrical 8-segment Table Mat, as bonus downloads of our eBook. Cutting the fabric pieces and stitching up this project was a quick, fun process, and, since you probably have a stash of scraps and miscellaneous small pieces of fabric in your closet, these mats will make economical & excellent gifts!
So stay tuned! In our next post in this series, we’ll be discussing our next eBook project. We’re going to show you how to apply this same segmenting technique to a piece of clothing, and in the process, we’ll be transforming it into a work of ART!
