Simple shapes and repetition

This is chugging along very nicely at the moment (now that I've said that, watch me grind to a halt!)

I'm not overthinking it, just making little units, then joining them into bigger ones, and so on.  I seem to be using two basic shapes: squares, which I'm sewing into four-patch units, and rectangles, which are just being joined into strips.

So at first it looks like this.
 Then like this.
 And in the end I have this.
Actually, I have four of these chunks now, but the sunlight, visible in the top right hand corner of the photo, pretty much wiped the fourth one completely, so I have cropped it out.  

At the moment I am thinking that I will make one, maybe two, more and then have a play and see what the next steps will be.

I like your fabrics and colors. The blocks will become such an interesting and inviting quilt, Kaja. Is this for the map challenge?

This is simply wonderful.

I like where this is going. Each section is a little different, but they all relate to each other. Keep going!

It's fun to get a peak of the progression from scraps to blocks!

When I see your work I'm certain I should just make an imaginary map. But I'm still trying to interpret a real, physical place. Love the rhythm you're creating here. The darker blues make great parks, or resting places. The different narrow strips stand in as larger, more open streets and smaller alleys. Good for you!

Very nice....You do motivate me...I have been so exhausted from Florence, that I have sewn nothing...tonight I will change that!!

Great contrast with floral, stripe, solid and plaid. Those bits of yellow and orange
add pizzaz, (not too much of course!)

I love seeing you get warmed up and then, almost overnight there's a definite rhythm we can see is happening with your quilting! Love it!

Now I am back near enough the beginning. I was thinking this was map looking. One thing for sure is, if the stripes and lines were all running true, it would not look half as well
