Still working on April

I took this photo a while ago in the hopes of developing it for the April challenge.  I knew I wanted to play with the designs in the openings, but not just leave them so symmetrical.  I also wanted to play with color.  I have made a few sketches, and today I finally started the project with fabric. 

This is just the start.  I have some other fabric pulled to build more color.  I used KF Targets as the peek-a-boo fabric, and I like the way the design stayed in the background.  It gives me the feeling I wanted of looking through a fence at something hidden, but wonderful.  I don't want to lose that when I add on, so I am going to look at it for a while before proceeding.


  1. Now that is cool.

    I have to apologize because I have been so distracted and slow with participation. My mom is in her last days and I have been elsewhere, not where I want to be in front of my sewing machine.

    glen : soon.........

  2. Intriguing ... love all the irregularities.
    Been busy & unable to put time into my piece.

  3. Interesting to see that circle fabric show through the ovals, but at first glance I saw holiday ornaments! That kind of double image has fascinated me ever since I first saw the "What do you see, the vase or the faces?" silhouette. Love it so far!

  4. It's great so far. It does make you want to get a better look through one of those "holes" to see what's behind!

  5. this is great! Can't wait to see what other wonderful things you do to it.
