I’m super excited about this new pattern release. Actually it’s a collection of patterns called the Luminosity Collection.
They shine like stained glass when the sun shines through them in a window. Made with Pojagi-style seams, they are totally reversible. Batik fabrics in vibrant colours make unique modern window coverings.
The first in the collection, Gleam, is made with strips of batik fabric in colours and neutrals. Using the “loop and snip” method makes construction simple and straightforward.
If you’ve never tried a Pojagi-style seam, this would be an excellent first project.
The sample shows three different colours – red, blue and yellow, but it would look nice in any colour combination. You could use only one colour or up to five different colours.
Glimmer is the second in the collection, and it is made with batik fat quarters. It looks great in any two colours or a colour and a neutral.
It has a similar construction technique to “Gleam” but with more pieces.
The third in the collection, Glow, is most people’s favourite. Made with ten different colours, it really does glow like a rainbow after a storm.
The construction of this piece is slightly more difficult than “Gleam” and “Glimmer” but a confident beginner could do it as long as each step is followed carefully.
If you want to match a particular colour scheme, you can always use fewer colours. It would look beautiful even if only one colour was used.
When you make any of these, please share the pictures #luminositycollection or #epidastudio. Enjoy!
