Ten have become 41 (with enough scraps for 3 or 4 more).
Wednesday I said I needed 63-80 for the queen size I had in mind. Forty-one doesn’t quite get me there. I’m not sure if I can get queen size out of these. Maybe if I creatively use negative space. Or think of something to add that fits in.
At least now that I see what I have, I can arrange and rearrange and plan concretely.
Not quite an art quilt, but I think some modern quilts are close enough cousins to link with Nina Marie’s Off the Wall Friday.

They are beautiful blocks! I think you could easily add some “negative space” in there as well as some borders and perhaps some sashing? I look forward to seeing what you do next!
Most settings are so symmetrical it is hard to think of one for this spontaneous quilt…very interesting challenge. But, I do like the blocks. Maybe you could do something asymmetrical, though–like the Indigo Logs in this link??? http://www.canadianquilter.com/photo-gallery/rosettes.php?page=2&year=2009
I feel that there is a kind of order in there somewhere, and yet, I also feel that maybe this is a time to let go and just throw them about until they are pleasing, without trying to over-organize them. Let them be free! =)
This looks intriguing. The orange and lime green give a bold edge to the depth of the blues and each block invites the eye in to see what’s there. I think this is going to look fantastic when it’s finished
What a fun project. It will be a treat watching you explore different ways to come up with a cohesive composition. The work already is jam packed with energy.
