Fun Friday, Part I
Last week I reinstituted Fun Friday for the first time this year. Fun Friday is the day I do anything I want rather than what I “should” be doing. Sometimes Fun Friday extends to the next Friday, as it did this week. After finishing my red strip-pieced tote bag, I still had some red scraps left so I started piecing bits and pieces together. Then on my way to the shower, I thought that cutting the pieced strips in half lengthwise would be fun so I ripped the long strips apart and cut some of them into 3/4-inch strips. Also pictured is one of my starters/enders (also called spiders), which gave me a working title of Black Widow.
I cut a piece of grey fabric at 60-degree angles at 3-, 5-, 8-, 13- and 21-inch intervals (a Fibonacci sequence).
Next, I turned the piece and cut angles in the other direction (again, 60-degree angle and Fibonacci sequence).
I started lining up the pieces, which was not particularly easy, so I ripped out the first two strips and decided to stagger the lines.
This piece is sewn together–I’ll have a photo next Friday when I start quilting. Right now I’m thinking about a huge spider web. Stay tuned for Part II.
