The digital seasons

I am happy!
Finally decided on binding of the wall hanging The Digital seasons.

The idea is to add small pieces of all fabrics I used as printing colors on the selvage.
The whole wall hanging is full of metaphoras - the fabrics I have chosen are connected with the colors of the seasons, the size of the blocks is different acording to my love to the seasons.
I love fall and hate winter.
Even the FMQ is corresponding to the seasons - wavy traces for the winter and blue water brooks for the spring.

I definatelly fall in love with these gravatars!

Stained glass window

Sometimes the beginning of the day is the most creative time for me.
That morning when drinking coffee I realized that sewing stained glass window patchwork would be sew easy using new technique if insert a dark strip after rearranging the parts.
What I mean?
Do you remember my improvisational method of piecing from last post?
I have added a 3/4 inches stripe. And voila.

Look at this

Now the strip is half inch.
No need to stitch it with perfect quarter inch seam allowance.
It looks more naturally and vivid as a real stained glass window.

Which one do you like?
