July BOM #3

Project Description

What was your inspiration? I wanted to do something different with the modern wheel but not sure I was very successful. It looks kind of weird - maybe a shell or a snail? Might end up redoing this one when I see how much fabric I have left.

What you will need

  • batiks
  • Isacord thread

Q&A with Darns

knittinganet asked:
I think these are gorgeous and I love the idea of using different scales to get the shell. Very nice. Thank you for sharing these!
Darns answered:
Thanks so much! I think I would do the shell one with fewer height changes the next time - maybe from 7 in. down to 4 1/2 or 5 in - make more blades the same height
juliat asked:
the shell block is very very cool.
Darns answered:
Thank you! Still not sure if I like it or will keep it
