Cut and Fold Designs in Coloured Papers

The colour seems to "pop" on some of these combinations. On others, I used a copper metallic pen in a dotted line to simulate stitching and define the shape. I found that i am getting quite adept with the craft knife, as I used it for cutting the shapes in the coloured papers.
Some of the designs lent themselves to interweaving, and they look quite interesting.

I can see this as a very important exercise and also as a tool for designing, especially for quilt blocks and tiles. I rather enjoyed the possibilities, and executing the shapes in the coloured papers. I am becoming very keen to see some of them stitched in fabric.
