kiku around kiku pattern - deserve your dream (2)

Deserve your dream.
— Octavio Paz (1914–1998)

This is a new pattern — a traditional pattern that employs a second round of kiku herringbone around the first in reversed colors for an interesting optical effect. The pattern I followed was an S20 division and this an S12. I like very much how it looks, but would like to try it on the narrower division to see what effect that has on the illusion.

Midnight blue thread wrap; S12 division with khaki #8 perle; embroidery in purple and a brassy-golden-yellow. The quote by Octavio Paz  is in the bell box along with 12 brass rings. Circumference: 11 inches / 28 cm; diameter: 3.5 inches / 8.91 cm. Completed 24 January 2011 (no. 091).

Sold to benefit Kiva.org.
