    My latest abstract design experiment

    Sharing:

    Its been a while since I've sewn. I pieced a series of 2.5"strips with left over batiks I have .... cut the rolled tube into squares using an angle ruler. I decided to experiment with the layout.


    Layout looks busy but I love abstract and so much color.

    Just pieced row 1 and 2 of 12. Guesstimate it will take me all week to finish piecing this top.

    Thank you for looking.Name:  IMG_4359_abstract quilt.jpg

    So very bright! My kind of quilt. Can't wait to see the finished product.
    A quilt is like a good life. It's full of mistakes, but, in the end, it looks pretty good.

    Busy? I don't think so. I love the way all the colors come together. Your eye moves all over the quilt and does not get drawn to one particular area. Great job!

    I just made one with purple and put sashes in between the big squares. Used four to make the big squares.

    Yours is very pretty.

    I love the saturated color, too. I try to avoid too much white or off white in my quilts. Just doesn't thrill me like color!

    I love it just the way it is. However, if you are worried that it's too busy, try some neutral colored sashing between each block.
