The shapes in the new Clamshell Rose shape collection create some elegant possibilities.
When I started playing with the melon shape, my sketchbook filled up quickly.
I can hardly wait to share them with you!
Even the simplest 8 inch block has possibilities.
Two of these use the corner shape and two of these replace each corner with a melon and two “bottom half” clamshells.
Intriguing. I need to play with this.
These are 12 inch blocks.
TIP Every Clamshell is 4 inches across and that makes it is easy to confirm the block size.
These are 16 inch blocks.
This 8 inch block doesn’t use a Clamshell at all! It is a mini Orange Peel.
(Other sizes of Orange Peel are available. Main Orange Peel Page.)
Orange-peel-y Clamshell Rose.
My sketchbook is filling up!
This color variation of Clamshell Rose reminds me of Tudor Rose.
