Another JQ inspired by the Glenthorne workshop. This is a direct copy in fabric of a paper exercise that I thoroughly enjoyed. We took our jug outline and created a page of overlapping jugs, then using a mask translated various shapes to a grid. The idea was to use a 2" mask to transfer to a grid of 2" squares but I found that this didn't create the simpler outlines that I wanted so I used a 1" mask and a 2" grid. I can see this being a useful exercise to repeat but the abstraction also works for me. I can see plenty of ways to play with scale, pattern, texture ...... This is just a 30 second sketch based on right hand square on the second row:
I could be here for hours!
