Curved Tear Drop Placemat
Today, using a curved tear drop again, I want to experiment with designs for 12" x 18" placemats.
It always amazes me how many different designs can be created by repeating a single simple shape over and over. The secret to finding them is to ask what if...? repeatedly.
The designs for this post were made using Paint, which is a very simple drawing program. It only allows me to rotate the tear drop shape 90 degrees. My wife has ordered a Go fabric die that cuts tear drop shapes. When I get that, I'll be able to do real-world designs on my design wall and place the tear drops at any angle. That will mean a whole new series of design possiblities.
For more applique designs go to My Posts By Subject in the sidebar on the right and click on Applique.
