Spring, oh spring

Umbrella curves

Spring hasn’t come yet where I am, but she’s trying.    This umbrella gal is so sweet.  The design is after an illustration by Jessie Willcox Smith for a magazine cover in 1922.  I meant it just for fun to play with the lines.  I love the curves and can really feel the wind and rain.     Hope you are all looking forward to the change of season where ever you are.

    • I was actually just playing with curves on yesterday’s posting of the umbrella girl. If you’d like a pattern I’d be happy to post it if you’d suggest a size that would work for you. Will you use standard applique techniques? Or will you piece the curves using freezer paper and your machine? Maybe I should do a tutorial on machine piecing curves… Hmmm.

      Just let me know how you would like the pattern…. The simplest for me is to post a full sized line drawing and let people cut it apart and color it as they wish. The most extensive pattern would include separate pieces with 1/4″ seams, and tick marks for aligning the assemblies, and a color chart with a limited palette. The line drawing I can post quickly, the others take time.

  1. I made it! I made Umbrella for one very very nice girl. The beginnings were difficult, but now I know how to do it and sew certainly one more :)Cordial greetings from Poland.
