Let’s start with the “art” shot. This little piece is not actually bowed, it is a rectangle of 5″ x 8.5″ and the finished strips are about 1/4″ wide, give or take. I think I will refer to this as industrial modern matchstick piecing. It started as an idea that came together as I made a latte last night in my Colorado mug. The heat wave had been replaced with light cooling rain and finally I was able to sit and sew comfortably again. I gathered some leftover bits of some blue, teal and yellow solids and cut 3/4″ strips.
