A start, but not a wall yet

Having decided that I am going to carry on making holes, I thought I'd better make a start on something to make them in.  So I've started cutting into the fabrics I pulled and stuck on the wall.

These are just strips, cut freehand but I have deliberately gone even wonkier than usual, so there are some bigger curves.  I'm going to make a couple more chunks like this and then play with cutting into them.  At the moment this seems quite a literal interpretation of the theme, but I'm not too worried about that, as long as I like how it's looking.  In any case I know that this will probably look completely different at the end from how I am envisaging it now!

I'm intrigued! I have a couple of pieces left over from a pieced background...might make interesting layering and onto a new world!

I'm a little confused, I think. I assume that you'll put holes in this, but don't tell me! I want to let it unfold naturally. lol I love seeing how things develop and figuring it out. You should see me at a quilt show....picking out the blocks on every quilt, figuring out the quilting, checking out the back. I'm the one everyone is passing up cause I take so long! See you tomorrow for Saturday photos.
