After some time spent staring thoughtfully at the help file, I decided to recreate the Cosmic Twist bargello quilt from Eileen Wright's Twist-and-Turn Bargello Quilts in EQ7. I own the book and wanted to test out a few fabric ideas.
And it WORKED! HA! To think, I was going to do this mess on paper with fabric. Nope. This gives me a much better idea.
(Oh, and I just used those particular fabrics to get a vague idea for what I want - there are fabrics I now know I'll need to tweak for the desired effect and contrast.)
Proof! *happy dance*
The quilt-to-be in its rough form and without the lines
