I think this piece is really pretty. Did you pleat and put clothes pins all along the pleats or did you fold the fabric the opposite way before you pinned it. I can see the lines going in both directions.

Hi! I did a regular accordian pleat and them jammed the clothespins - cool plastic ones from Ikea - on every available spot. It looked like a starburst.

I really like the colors in this piece. What two colors did you use?

I used straight Mixing Red. Great color on linen.
