Unstuck

Strictly speaking I'm no longer stuck, rather than unstuck, of course.  

I'm short of time this week, but snatched a couple of hours this morning and did pretty much what I said I needed to do, ie added a bit of blue and put some verticals in where I had a horizontal.  I'm pretty happy with where I have got to. 

And it works from all angles, I think.  Here's a different view.



As it stands this is now about 60" square. There is a chance I'll stop here, but am toying with the idea of going round once again, if the fabric will stretch to it.  I am now completely out of the pink shirt as well as a couple of the other fabrics.  I have added a couple of new ones in the outer pieces but may still not have enough for what I have in mind.  I guess I'll just have to give it a go and see what happens.

Wow, close to another finish! You are definitely unstuck now, and it's really going to be about whether the scraps you have left balance well enough with the whole, isn't it?

Jan at The Colorful Fabriholic taught me that trick to rotate the quilt (or a photo of it) to check for balance. I think you succeeded in the balance department!

Awesome!

It looks great! Love it!

Intriguing. Can't leave a good thing alone, can you? (Snicker) I can't either!

It's looking good! I love the intermittent pinwheels. The colors are such that they don't scream pinwheel, but more like when you see one it's a pleasant surprise.

It looks so good! The colors work well together and I really like that you have both hortizonal and vertical lines. It adds lots of drama and movement. Love it!

It's all looking wonderful Kaja! I really love how one just 'discovers' the pinwheels & the olive green bits add a nice depth (I think I've commented before about them!).

What a great result, it looks very good. Greetings

Love it! I find that running out of fabric and substituting others forces me to be more creative to finding that balance. It can also add more interest. I will be looking forward to seeing what you add to this already fabulous piece!

Your a glutton for punishment girl lol

I know I mentioned them before, but I love the pinwheels. The "double" pinwheels are my favorite.

What a great quilt, Kaja.

Aloha,

I love the kind of projects that just flow and take the quilter along for the ride. I don't get to make those very often! Your quilt looks really good, and it will be fun to see where you end up with it. :)

Your improv quilting fascinates me! The top looks wonderful as is. I hope you have enough material to finish what you have in mind.

I love the little pin wheels, a real tease in the quilt . It has all came me together really well as your quilts always do. Your improv always pulls everything all in

Monica said...

I just love the depth this one has. So great! Carry on. :D

The pink and the green looks so good together, as well as the pinwheels and coins. It looks great.

It amazes me how much better this looks than last week's photos. Subtle changes make a big difference.
