Lines

I’ve been kind of stuck on lines lately, since doing the article on narrow inserts (i.e., lines) for Modern Quilts Unlimited.  As a result, I took a series of pictures of lines to explore their functions.

Lines can define forms and set boundaries:

Lines can make patterns, and those patterns can be distorted for more interest:

Lines can link people, patterns, or shapes, both literally and as design elements:

Guy lines from the poles keep them stable, and the poles carry lines for power and telephone service in this rural area

And too many lines (or enough lines) can make a tangle!

All of them make interesting patterns.  I can feel a new quilt design on the way 🙂
