Last week I showed how removing redundant lead lines and curving others could make your windows look better. If you missed that example here it is again. The pattern on the left came from the internet. The problem I see with this design first and foremost is that there are too many lead lines running from the flower to the outside edge of the glass. Secondly, they are almost entirely straight which makes them look as though the glass was broken accidentally. The pattern on the right reduces the number of lead lines but keeps the flower intact as it was in the original pattern. Already, the pattern on the right looks better (although in all honesty I'd remove or shorten even more of those lines) but we can make it look even better by altering the flower itself.
First up we have Cheryl who completed her Lighthouse Window with time to spare. Her border choices are perfection as they add to the window without drawing attention away from the main focus of the design. While making this Cheryl recognized some problem areas and then fixed them rather than turning a blind eye to them and that's exactly how I like to see my students handle a problem!
