I think it is time to try a piece where the backside becomes the front side. One of the pieces that I have been working on for months now has been coming along nicely but the other day, when I was ironing a seam I thought how compelling the under side was , with all its roughness and loose edges was and that it might be yet another avenue for me to explore. I have always been finicky about my seams- I love to press them, and due to the thicknesses in some of my seam allowances- sometimes there can be 5 or 6 layers of fabric in a seam allowance- I almost always have to clip my seams. I shudder to think how well these pieces would last if they ever found their way onto a bed!
So I think a new experiment may be to see what a piece would look like with a combination of fronts and undersides showing... I would also like to see how hand stitching might work on the underside. Sounds like I have my work cut out for me!
