I have a system in place for my pieced swing coats and choose the colors carefully.
So when people ask if I can make one in a different color way, I almost always have to decline.
However, this one intrigued me, black on black.
Nothing but texture to differentiate the various fabrics.
Below, the coat in mid-piecing,
It’s cool isn’t it? The reason you see the separate pieces of fabric is because of the way light is reflected from the surfaces. Very subtle.
A detail so you can see the various fabrics.
I can’t wait to see this one sewn into a coat.
It’s subtle and exciting at the same time.
Fabulous! Hope you will bring what is completed to the Fla workshops!

That is very cool! I love the subtlety ! Very sophisticated! Will be eager to see the finished product. I’m not sure I could deal with the monotony of all that piecing. I guess that’s why I never became a quilter. Your patience must be infinite!

Wow, that is a winner!!

I can imagine it being very hard to see to sew on this lovely piece……but the finished object is going to be stunning.

I am making a black quilt, and it is amazing how many different blacks there are.
