Blackwork project!

Postby funkymonkey » Wed Aug 29, 2012 2:32 pm

Ever since I learned about blackwork, I've been intrigued, overwhelmed, and constantly reminded of the fill style palettes from old drawing software.

I have finally found the perfect image for my blackwork project, an old MacPaint screen shot!

I probably won't have a lot of free time anymore now that school has started... but this one will definitely be sitting impatiently in my brain. I'll post WIP's when I start on it :)

Yay! I love blackwork.

And I love that blackwork doesn't have to be in black. Do you have plans for color? Or are you going with just black?

Ok, the time is near! It took 8-10 hours, but I finally finished the pattern for this. Normal people probably don't draw out full patterns for blackwork, but since it's my first one, and I needed to turn a pixel image into lines, I decided it would be worth the effort. I plan to start it when I finish my charity quilt square, which should be in the next couple of days!
