12 x 12 Challenge – Black, Anything But Square


Lily Kerns chose our latest challenge for the Uncommon Threads group. It had to be black and anything but square.

Drove me nuts!

I cut 3 1/2 squares out of all the black fabrics I have in my stash and sewed them together to make a 12″ x 12″ square. Then I auditioned all kinds of stuff on it and it all looked mundane. Finally I settled on a pojagi sample, made some time ago when I was just fooling around. The sample was sewn to the black background and the black cut away behind it. Then the back of the whole piece was also cut away so that one can see through the transparency. The tile is “Diaphragms.”

I actually like the back better than the front!

All of the challenges can be seen on the Uncommon Threads blog site here.
