I found a pattern I've never done before: cabana. It's cool because it has a 3-D effect, and can be made in straight lines, or inside of curved lines. I played with it quite a bit:
|cabana on a curve|
|it looks so architectural|
See, to the right. It looks like a leaf or a rib cage. Organic. Of course, that smoke stack looking thing is pretty cool, too.
And here is the piece I ended up creating for the challenge. I used Camellia, Chard, Cabana, (cabana split leaf...is that what I'll call it?) and Chainlette.
|I like how the split leaf looking thing is over the chainlette.|
This was a fun challenge. All new patterns, and one variation that might be a new pattern of its own!
