Color Work - Newberg

Gentle curves are cut without a ruler or template then sewn together to create the main part of your project.  This may sound scary but you will find it very freeing and surprisingly easy.  Small bits of contrasting color(s) are scattered here and there to create interest in the design (I used all black for mine but you could use several different colors if you wish).  I used very narrow strips of the fabrics to get the final look that I wanted but the strips could be made wider also (would go together faster!).  I think this could make great placemats as well as a table runner; also a great wall hanging.
