Module 2 - Chapter 10 - Part 2

Design 2:
stage 5 was cut diagonally and every second strip was assembled, for the second design the leftover strips were used. This design reminds of of an armadillo

Design 4:
stage 4 was cut diagonally and everyother strip got reassembled
Design 3
3rd stage: stage 2 was cut into diagonal strips and only every other strip got re-assembled
Design 5a:
Here stage 1 was cut into squares which were then put on top of each other and cut diagonally. These were assembled to achieve the 3rd stage.
Stage 4: stage 3 was cut into 4 horizontal stripes and then reassembled
Stage 5: (last design on this page) stage 4 was cut up vertically, every other strip was flipped and then reassembled

Design 5b:
As for design 5a, stage 1 was cut into squares, put on top of each other, cut diagonally and reassembled. The resulting stage was re-cut diagonally, every other strip got re-assembled.
For the last design, the leftover strips got reassembled.


Fabric Sample
I chose Design 2 to reproduce in fabric, starting from stage 6, I cut stripes diagonally and re-assembled every second strip. For the sample below I used the leftover strips. One "wrong sides together" seam was made.


The Challenge
For this Fabric Sample I tried to cut the fabric not only horizontally or vertically but also diagonally. I thought it would be very interesting to see, how the sample would evolve. However, at the end, I think it won't have made any difference. I decided to stop the cutting and piecing, so that some "kind of pattern" would still look through. My sewing machine also started making some very annoying noises when crossing the seams. I love the texture achieved at the end and I could have tried to make the seams fray even more by treating them with a brush.

These look great Pascale - I heard you were at the Knitting and Stitching show - how's it going?
