12 tangram silhouettes (in pastel colours) of people busting their dance moves.
... ♫ in a Spoonflower contest entry! ♫
Or, more seriously, 12 tangram silhouettes of people busting their dance moves; all set on a backdrop pattern repeat which is also formed from tangrams but rendered in the style of traditional Chinese fretwork (zoom to see more detail).

At some point I'll have to try working out exactly how the tangram people should "lock" into place for weaving major. My current guess is that, since body-centred (the current setup) isn't "right", it might solely be down to where the heads go.

I certainly tried to do that. I put together a lot of different types of tangram people, repeatedly tweaking the positions of the pieces, and then chose the danciest of them (in various styles).

you give to this pattern such a great movement
I've only seen a relatively small amount of Tai chi (compared with my dancing experience) but my impression is that only some of the tangrams I've depicted here would match Tai chi moves. I think one might want to create/choose a slightly different set of tangram people to represent Tai chi.
Dancing or Tai chi? Love this pattern, and the fretwork. I have a couple of Dover books of some of those old Chinese lattice designs. I always looked at them longingly for quilt designs - because they wouldn't piece well at all. Now we can have them as fabric! And this tangram-based one is great.
I know - silly of me not to see that it was the same pattern, and obviously the color doesn't have anything to do with the pattern. and yeah, the black shows up more clearly - but I found the lightness of the grey (on the tangram fabric) a lot more appealing, it added to the open sensation of the fretwork.
I see. I thought the black would make the design show up more clearly than the grey - and it's not as though the colour is in the slightest bit significant to the design (unlike anything involving real world objects, say). It could easily be changed ...
ha ha... I don't know about "the rest of us" - it probably isn't wise to rely on MY aesthetic for anything! <P>
I see now that you did indeed include the link to the backdrop, and I had even clicked on it, but amazingly enough I just shut it without really looking at it?! I think it was because it was in black and white instead of grey and white - it looked so much different that it didn't seem to even be related. I linked it mentally to your 'web of stars' designs instead since it was the same colors. I really like the grey-and-white you have here!
Ah, and there I was carefully misaligning the people with the background because I thought the rest of you preferred things that way! It would certainly be possible to do a better aligned version if anyone actually had any serious interest in using the design for fabric. I already thought of people being interested in the fretwork backdrop - and had included a link to just such a plain version of it.
very nice. I confess I want to slide the tangram people in to the background so they 'lock' in place... ;o) I'd have liked it even more if the background lined up with the dancers, but it's nice the way it is. I like the open look of the fretwork - it would make a nice companion fabric all by itself!
