This was supposed to be my design wall shot for last Monday:
During my sew-n-tell meeting I cut more of these (mostly the oranges) strips. You see in the distant past - like maybe 5 years ago, this was going to be a quilt as you go Roman Stripes quilt. With the fish as large triangles & the stripes being warm on one side & cool on the other with the black being used as sashing & binding. I apparently do not care for quilt as you go & so this sat & sat & sat. I had many strips already cut - at random widths.... For the better part of 6 months, maybe even a year I have been resisting the urge to make a spiderweb quilt - I finally bit the bullet. My "Kites" will be black & there will be strips of the fish interspersed through out, but most of the fish will be on the back. I just need to finish making strips - especially blue ones!
My current design wall is just a pile of fabrics.
The first one has "all" of the greens that I pulled:
I then culled several & have settled on this selection:
(Would you add any greens from photo one to photo two?)
These will become a Mixtape quilt. I just need to start fussy cutting those martians!
