A Good Start

For my first 3-D experiment I decided to make a flower from the book Winter Wonders, edited by Jennifer Rounds and Catherine Comyns.  I borrowed my copy from the local library.  What makes this book unusual is that Japanese quilters designed all the projects.

 

I have to wonder if something got lost in the translation though.  The small yellow circle was supposed to be the flower center.  No way would I ever be able to gather the petals tight enough to use something that small.  That leaves me experimenting with other possible centers.

I already have a list of design changes I want to try on the next flower.  I’ll also change construction techniques to streamline the process.  I feel like I’ve messed with this little flower all week.  There has to be a faster way.

 

More to come as the experiment continues.
