Leaving the cool Foggy River on my design wall just to enjoy, I’m already working on a piece I’ll call “Bargello Jumble!” It’s inspired by the Peruvian place mat below.
For those unfamiliar with the term “Bargello,” it’s a quilting technique I haven’t used before. It involves sewing strips together, cutting them perpendicularly, shifting them to create a different pattern, then sewing the new strips together again.
I’m planning to add beads to accentuate or develop the Peruvian patterns seen in the placemat. Then I’ll make it into a little tabeltop screen. I’ll use unused chopsticks as the supports.
