recent pojagi

Just finished a pojagi-style piece as a gift for the generous mother of a friend.  Used lightweight linens and cottons, damask, and an open weave fabric.  I was trying for some spontaneity in this one and mostly free-cut and built the composition as I went.  Very badly photographed, however.  Ah well.  Will have to do, since the gift is already sent off.

With light through it, but the colors are not accurate; size is approx. 18"x18"

color is more accurate in this one

The "back" of the piece where I left the french seams not sewn down. Like the texture this gives.

    This is so serenly beautiful. So abstract, but yet I can’t help but “see” a lighthouse and boat. I wonder what other see….

    Oh, this is just spectacular! The design reminds me of the Gee’s bend quilts. Congratulations on this marvelous art.

    The last photo taken from behind is wonderful. I’m not sure that I wouldn’t have this side as the seen one all the time. Superb work. I really like french seams. Lucky gift recipient. Gilly

    Thanks. Yes, I’m very fond of the pleat-like seams on the back too. Really, the only thing that makes this the “back” for me is the hems turn to that side.

    This is a saying I love. “Coincidence is the messenger of truth.” I am working on a 7 foot square piece as a wedding canopy (chuppah) for my daughter and her beloved. (see comment two posts ago)

    I see windows with a black and white curtain pulled to one side. I love the translucent effect, really beautiful and calm.
