Next Step on Improv Solids

It looks like this is going to be a center medallion after all. I really like the sawtooth border on it.
Maybe a border of piano keys will come next (below), then another sawtooth border?

This time of year colors look especially delicious. I hope you're having a delightfully quilty day.

The spikey border is really an eye catcher. Colors are great too.

Love it!

I love the stream of consciousness feeling it has.

I recently bought the books Liberated Quiltmaking II and Rule Breaking Quilts. I can't wait to dome playing like that!

Love the floating look - really sets it off. Can't wait to see it finished.

Jan said...

You have great color sense, and I love seeing each step as you progress - although this looks finished as is, to me!

Katie said...

Wow. That's better than candy! :-)

Wonderful block. The spiky saw tooth border is traditional yet unexpected. Creates lots of energy.

This quilt resembles your last one, but it plays a different tune! It is such fun to see you play!

Heh - I don't like modern (i.e. non-traditional) quilts generally, but I like this one a lot!

Then again, I don't like modern art generally, but I really like Mondrian. Perhaps it's the mass of solids that does it for me.
