Cathie, thanks for starting this group. I am drawn more and more to tapestry - have collected a box full of images and color schemes to kickstart me. Love your choice of color - prismatic - in your first post. It is one of my favorite color schemes for graphics.
What happens to the structure of a textile which includes panels or blocks of tapestry? Does the tapestry-woven portion cause the overall cloth to draw in or pouch out, or ...? A project-in-planning here calls for tapestry-woven blocks in its borders.
Well first this is Theresac's piece you're looking at, really nice.
to answer your question , you can sew up the slits along the border and the main piece of weaving by hand, if the main piece is not delicate, after weaving , along the back.
If you have more questions why don't you start a thread so we can answer them there. I don't want to " hijack" Thereasc project page:)
thereasc, I really like the texture too in your piece by elongated chiné.it also looks like the play of light. One side the reflected light of water, the other side a deep pool. I think the light blue and dark blue is so more effective than grey. It has more character .
I've Deleted this post and moved it to the main thread where it belongs. Can't figure out how to just delete the entire entry. Wish that the threads worked from most recent on top too.
I am happy to have found a tapestry study group. I could use a good tapestry book if anyone can recommend one and I would be happy to work on any type project the group picks. Previously I have woven tapestry small items with navajo weaving yarn or hand spun.
This is a project thread that you have posted to. There is a tapestry study group that you are welcome to join. We have a pretty long thread currently right here. Please join us there, we have started to discuss books and yarn and other wonderful tapestry stuff. Please come and play along with us!
Thereasac, wonderful, wonderful 4 th sample! I like the design and you're right, not so easy to do!
These are great!!!
I have actually referenced back to the samples while weaving - that is a couple of firsts for me. One, to actually weave samples and then to use them:-) Will wonders never cease!
<p>It looks like fun to play around with color.</p>
