The Endeavourers TEXTURE theme

The Endeavourers theme for the first project for 2019 was texture.  I have seen basket weave designs created using fabric and I wanted to give it a try.  This piece is stitched in rows using 4-1/2" squares with a row of 1/4" black sewn along two sides. The squares are then stitched in an alternating pattern.    Each square and strip were the correct size.  I sure thought my seams were stitched to the correct width.  This piece looks more wonky in this picture than it really is.

Carol, I love this! The black gives such depth to the piece, and I'm glad I got to see it done this way. I've made a few similar pieces, but would not have thought to add that element. The photo wonkiness is lovely. I try hard to add it to mine.

I hope participating in the Endeavourers continues to keep you inspired. Wonderful group.

Carol, I am so impressed by the black added to the piece, and how it develops the third dimension. Nice work. The wonkiness positively adds to the effect, and I work hard to get it into my wall art. It's not always easy, is it?

Enjoy the wonderful motivation of the Endeavourers this year, and keep inspiring the rest of us.

Love this, Carol! Wonky is good, it means hand-crafted. Perfect looks like a machine churned it out. Be proud of wonky! 😉

I see from the comments, we all agree about the wonkiness! This is a very clever and interesting way to create a textured effect :)
