Life is a Quilt Waiting to Happen
I love these blocks! I can think of two challenges in composing the blocks. First, there is a wide range of granularity, with some blocks having tiny pieces and some having large pieces. And second, it might be helpful to define a neutral background color to pull it all together. As my friend Stacey says, neutral is whatever you have the most of.
What Dan said.... I love the blocks, but there may be more than one project here or maybe something is just missing to bring them together for you. I wonder what you will do next, I hope you will continue.
hmmm ... you can't get into trouble unless your willing to be totally creative ... so congrats!!!
I love these blocks...don't stop...
These blocks are great - you are probably just going through that 'what have I done stage' - take a break and create something small using different colours etc and then revisit these blocks - that sometimes works for me ;0)
The block in the first pic looks like an urban landscape to me - I like it. Keep going.
No.. NO.. Keep going! This looks great! Unplanned process takes us to surprising end results. Sometimes good and sometimes not so much.. But unless you do, you wont discover!I love these blocks.
Seems like the ones with more pieces are using a different fabric (pattern) and color palette than the ones with fewer pieces (solids). Maybe if you do a little swapping things will integrate more.Love these blocks, though!
I really love these blocks. Keep going, and you'll find that you have a nice surprise in the end!
I like it when you get a little carried away! I can't wait to see the finished quilt!
your funny!! I like where your going!!
it'll come together, just play with the arrangement. don't rush it.
Having been here in the past, experience tells me to pick one block and make a finished composition from that one alone. You are on the road to working in a series with these pieces, but trust the motif, support it with a bit more fabric, and you will have made art.Or ignore me and do what you will.
My 2 cents ~ Keep going with what you have. I agree with Sujata, you may surprise yourself. I find that when I get to that point, if I ignore the self doubts and continue on, it often leads to more creative results. And don't forget, you have the backing, which I always think of as my supporting cast.
I did this once - kept cutting and sewing until I didn't like it. Unfortunately I had photographed earlier phases and liked them much better. I made the pieces into a mat which I still don't like. So - you could either discard it or keep going, it could go either way! I absolutely love your work and your so-helpful tutorials, thanks for your blog. Looking forward to seeing what happens next.
Stopped by while surfing the net and trying to keep cool. I'm so enjoying your blog and your amazing quilts. I love the improv blocks, nothing more fun in my mind!best from Tunisia, nadia
