I'm afraid I left myself with very little time for this challenge, but had already decided to repeat an earlier piece that I had really liked, 'Reflections'. All did not go well! I wanted to use this 'tiling' technique to show off my favourite bit of snow dyed fabric, but when I came to sew the pieces together the fabric, a wonderful cotton/silk mix, moved and stretched and would not behave. I choose a black and white fabric for the strips, thinking they would disappear into the background, but instead they seem to dominate! I'v been wondering about adding some more quilting, but that would cover the delicate patterns in the fabric, and I could not bring myself to do it. So here it is, an encore that has not lived up to the main performance. I will live with it, and learn from my mistakes.
