A Diagonal I Like

Japanese Sample: Diagonal

I have an old Japanese weaver’s sample book–a treasure given to me by my special friend and mentor, Helen Pope. I have it opened to the page with this glorious diagonal. Somehow, it seems beautifully simple to me. I see that the piece of cloth is cut on the bias. I think surface design techniques could create diagonals, too. I think what I love it it’s boldness.
