9 Patch Curves

I was intrigued by the description of Sue Benner's class over at Gerrie's blog, so I thought I'd give it a whirl. This was my version of the 9patch exercise, except I used more than the three required fabrics, and cut it up into a rather wonky 9patch. Here's the Before

And here is the After


The after is very very stiff as this is done with fused shapes. I rather like how this came out. Thanks Gerrie for sharing what you learned in class.

I like it too!! I think the fabric with the text on it really adds great interest!

Neato exercise! (Trying to find some other word to use besides "cool". Heh.)

Like Gerrie said, I think the text print really adds a spark to the block.

(Wonder if there would be a way to get that sort of look without all the fusing...like maybe wonky piecing that's then chopped and reformed?)
