Feeling Gray

Recommended Posts

Next up is a series of 3 sails all in gray tones (Black, Charcoal, Silver and White)..Not sure if this will be a stack or individual kites yet. Picture is to give an idea of what is coming. Patterns are by no means set yet.

You're ready for a mesh kite progressive stack!, leave half of the fabric strips out

a couple Vickis or 135%s, followed by two 100% and finally a couple of 75s and two 40%ers to bring up the rear

There is a mesh stack in the works but that's a different project.

The Feeling Gray set is coming along.. Sail #1 is a straight fade based on my diamonds technique. the other two sails resulted from starting two offsetting designs and mixing  the halves with every other basting run.. It resulted in a pair of sails with a much less distinct transition pattern but an overall look that mimics its mate.. Basting is done.. Centers and sewing remain..

I feel like the center white diamond near the leading edge of the kite should be black - taking about the one with the dark outer edges. They are all very pretty.

At least for my kites, LE's will be Black or White for the foreseeable future. Will lean toward white unless the kite itself requires black.. The Red I had was a one time purchase no longer available in that form. I literally bought all I could. To make Red LE's now, I'd have to buy the 54"  bulk fabric and cut it down completely..That's a lot of work and some very long straight cuts..
