    the tie dyes make it look like it has motion-I love them but they do not go with most fabric-but they play well with batiks

    Very pretty! The marbled looking blue fabric looks like water. You should finish it. It's going to turn out great.

    I'm not usually into "modern" type quilts, but this one really caught my eye. Makes you just want to look and look some more. Great job...and my, do you line up your seams well!

    The fabric gives such an interesting effect. Almost looks like a depiction of unknown planets. Very cool.

    Isn't it amazing that you can spend all those hours working on a quilt....get to a point where you set it aside....and then you forget about it. I have a few that I've re-discovered. Good luck with your find.

    yes you can be so into it and then it gets put away-and forgotten for a while

    It makes me feel like I am looking into another world. Love the motion in it.

    Wow! I love the colors. I have always found that if I walk away from a quilt for a while I see it in a new light later and can just improve on its design. Great job.
