In this work-in-a-series, I limited myself to one piece of fabric: Robert Kaufman Kona in “Riviera” and one thread: Sulky Rayon in pale yellow.
Working in series allows the artist to explore a theme and/or a technique in more depth. The challenge is to keep the series unified so it looks like a collection.
Unity can be achieved by repeating elements. In this case the background fill, the colors and the thread are repeated, with the major design element varied.

What if…this border instead of spirals?
What if…this central design instead of a star or anchor?
What if…this negative space instead of…
