Fractured Reality 3 is going to be part of a tryptic that I’m doing for the laundry room wall – using the Lecien Japanese Taupe fabrics collected while in the USA a few months ago. This particular range of fabrics came from Heritage Designs Quilting & Needlework, a wonderful store in the Iowa Amana colonies that I discovered a few years ago. I didn’t actually get to the store this time, but Chris, the store owner, did some wonderful shopping for me! From my online research, I think she probably has the best selection of Japanese Taupe fabric out there.
I followed a very similar process to what I did with Fractured Reality 1 & 2 except that I started with solid pieces of fabric, 3.5×3.5 and 6.5×3.5. Then I sliced and diced each. I wasn’t quite happy with the larger piece so I sliced and diced again.
I ended up with 2 versions of FR3. Mr. W likes FR3 best and I like FR3.5 best. I’m also not 100% sure on the size – I figure until I get the other two portions of this tryptic started, I really won’t know. My thought is also to make it asymetrical or jagged rather than a perfect rectangle – again……it will unfold as the other 2 pieces develop.
