Today’s Prompt: Fabric
I learned about “temperature quilts” today and how to make them digital. But I of course took my own path.
I adapted one of my previous pieces to create a quick pattern for fabric [see it here as an outdoor cushion, which we have for summer fun]. My adapted colors:
The Segment Colors
Each nautilus segment is formed from January temperatures from Coulee Dam, WA from 1-31 —center to outside. I created a temperature color chart. I used the low temps for each day as the base colors in each segment, then for the highs, on screen mode, I added patterns– coordinated with the colors:
The background are the color variances from low on the outside to warmer inside– only 5 variances– the lower five colors– from my chart. I added some wavy lines and patterns to those just for interest, but could be for mood!
Highs/Lows for January, 2023, Coulee Dam, WA:
The Chart for Each Day
I created this chart to use as colors for high/low temps– I create a layer at the top and numbered each segment of the nautilus from the center out and applied the base, low temp colors on separate layers so I could add a clipping mask and apply the patterns in the same color, but using “screen” blend mode for the high temp colors.
Wasn’t that fun?
I decided to upload my design to Society6 Sheri42 Shop, even though I may want the background a little less “squared” off. But I rather like the colors!
Here’s what the new pattern looks like in a 4×4 square of the base pattern:
And here’s a gallery of four FABRIC products. Indeed! Fun!
