Description:

Perfect 5 point stars on the S43433 grid over mirror line stripes.

Perfect 5 point stars on the S43433 grid over mirror line stripes. The underlying symmetry of tetrad and diad axes, vertical and horizontal glide reflections and diagonal mirror reflections is mostly broken by the colouring scheme. Currently displaying a cell-centred repeat in black on mardi gras colours of purple, gold and green. Other colours, stylings, sizes and orientations are available on request and you can even ask for a combination of several designs together.

sef says: Yes, definitely nothing but straight lines - on both the stars and the stripes! It's just messing with your mind.

su_g

su_g says: The wavy illusion to the stripes is very striking - I had to look and look again to assure myself that they were straight! A nice classic design, very effective.

bippidi...

bippidiiboppidii says: Ah, another very clever geo-type repeat, you have a real knack for getting shapes to fit together. I like the super-hero bent as opposed to the patriotic bent too...

sef

sef says: I think it's mostly down to the underlying grid of twisted squares and equilateral triangles. The stars just smooth off the angles a bit with their vertex-to-vertex crossings. You could smooth it even more by having "fatter" stars (where the minimum radii aren't dictated by the lines joining the vertices).

maplewo...

maplewooddesignstudio says: I love the way this is constructed! Love the implied ovoid shapes that the stars make. Love the way the stars make the stripes look undulating. Fabulous!

sef

sef says: I do now use the implied curves in some other designs. But this particular one was meant to be "stripes".

ottoman...

ottomanbrim says: I really like the optical illusion of curves although all the lines are straight.

sef

sef says: I'm pleased you like it. It's probably a bit too "patriotic" for me. The stars are perfect, though, and I wanted to complete the set(s) of them. When I have time I plan to use the hinted-at wavy lines instead for a marine blues stripe.

scifiwritir says: wow! so patriotic. Simple, elegant, perfect.

sef

sef says: If you mean the printing was a bit off, then they do sometimes have problems with that, regardless of colour profile. They are probably very busy right now with so many of us ordering re-tests.

fireflower

fireflower says: I don't have as many designs as you have, so I am up on proofing, but half of the last batch (new profile) were not up to par, so I guess it's still in flux. I am happy to wait.

Posted over 4 years ago.

sef

sef says: I'm a bit behind on proofing things - having waited for the print colour profile to settle down. I think this one wasn't in the batches waiting to go (whereas the other one on which you commented probably was).

fireflower says: When this goes up for sale, I'll get some of it for my quilting friends, too. Another great backing for the quilts they make for wounded military personnel.

sef

sef says: It's that interesting semi-regular base of squares and triangles again - but viewed from a different angle. I was doing this one anyway, as part of series I'd been preparing for months. So I thought I might as well enter it since it turned out rather superheroish.

fireflower

fireflower says: I like the interlocked ovate pattern in both directions, that shows up along the edges of the stars. Very lively movement, and my eyes are happy to wander the various paths.
