That's New to Me:Vee!

What a fun piece to make this was! SuzyMosh has a very interesting weekly challenge, to use patterns that we haven't used before, and this week we are to use V patterns.

 I chose five patterns that I've never used before, and one that I love and use a lot. I simply had to. For a string, i drew a curvy line snaking all over the page.

From the top left, going clockwise: vortex, viaduct, via, verve, voxter. I've seen several of these patterns around, and I practiced via one time but never used it in a tile or anything.

and Verdigoh is a favorite of mine. I love how organic it is, and how well it fills a corner space. I filled the bottom left corner with tipple, and added lots of tipple to the verdigoh...

The piece as a whole reminds me of a walk in the woods. There's some aspen, some pine, an eddy or two in the creek along the way. Even the viaduct sorta looks like a pine cone or something.

This was quite a fun challenge, very enjoyable!


  1. Looks great.. I love the look of Verdigoh :)

  2. Nice tile! I can see the walk through the woods too.

  3. A super interesting Tile, Heidi. You've used some wonderful patterns, a number of which are brand new to me. Thanks for naming them. A beautiful and well drawn Tile. Well done.

  4. Very nice tile! I like your combination of all these new patterns :-)
    I love verdigoh too and it looks so nice in the corner of your tile.

  5. Lovely tile - it is so organic!
