I'm still rotating this, still adding bits and pieces.
In the normal course of things I avoid putting two pieces with the same fabric next to each other, but today I broke that rule. You can see there are two strips of the biggish check next to each other in the bottom right corner above. I tried every other fabric I had next to the inner one of the two but couldn't come up with something I liked. I don't know why I stuck the second strip down, but I did, and then I decided that actually I didn't mind it there and it could stay. It may be a slightly sad reflection on the rest of my life that this felt a bit risky when I did it, but the more I look at it, the more it seems just fine, and not really risky at all.
After adding those bits I decided I wanted to work in a slightly bigger chunk, rather than just swiveling with every addition and ending up with a log cabin. I like the log cabin feel to it so far, but just don't want to get too predictable. So you can see I'm working on a section at the bottom (of this photo, not necessarily of the quilt). It's not all stitched together yet but I'm there or thereabouts. Then I will swivel again.
