During my long walk this morning I listened to a podcast that talked about the right brain and drawing, and more generally just how the brain sections interact to spark creativity. It’s such an interesting topic to think about how neurons and chemicals interacting can cause such wonderful things to happen. So I’ve decided to look a little at my latest creative process.
I’m fascinated with tesselating shapes. I think of it kind of the same way as neurons and neurotransmitters interacting. I’ve been studying Jinny Beyer’s quilts and her book about tesselations.
The pattern was transferred on to the dark fabric by using a lightbox and going over the design on the reverse side of the fabric with chalk. The applique fabric is then basted on to the right side of the fabric from the design on the wrong side ( now that takes some brain power!)
