Squares and Angles

Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge this week is squares and angles. What fun, I thought, and hurried to my photo library. What I discovered is that I didn’t think I was going to be able to participate this week. Every single photo I have that includes squares and angles is primarily a photo of curves. I like curves. My eyes are drawn to curves. I cover up lines and angles with curves. I make angles and squares into curves.

As I was pondering this dilemma  I looked up at the wall hanging over my right shoulder and smiled at the curves. Then it dawned on me – the curves are made up of angles and squares. One hundred and seventy-one squares to be exact.

Piecing this together required making lots (many more than I actually needed) of three different squares and then laying them out so the contrast of light and dark created the illusion of curves. Did I say that I like curves?

But you have to acknowledge that this meets the criteria of lines and angles! You can see entries from people who love lines and angles by going to –

  2. This is such a beautiful work of art Pat, and perfect for the challenge. I find it fascinating that the curves appear more pronounced depending on the colour and pastern of the fabric!


  3. So beautiful — I have great admiration for quilting. In fact, on my (work-from-home) office chair, ALWAYS, is one of my family’s WELL-used quilts made in the late 19th/early 20th century. 🙂 Brings me great comfort!


    • So funny. Yes, I know what you mean. When I do something that needs to be precise, like this one, I usually do each seam two or three times. I have done patterns that had funny puffs when I laid it flat.


I'd love to hear your thoughts.
