Not far to go

Today the good news is that I found my last strip of brown fabric.  It's not huge, (those tiles are 13" square, to give you an idea) but then I don't need much.  I could probably have coped without it, by using more of the black fabric, but it's good to have my options open.
I made this chunk, which I think is the bottom right-hand corner. 
I'm not tidying up the edges until I'm sure of what I'm doing...which might be something like this.
I need to get the position of the top cross just right.  If it's too low or too close to the central one it seems to make the whole thing feel a bit squat, though I am finding that the foreshortening that comes with taking photos on the floor makes it hard to demonstrate that with a picture.  Anyway, I know where I think it belongs so it's just a question of working backwards from that point to fill in the gaps.

Nearly there, I think.

You've made a lot of progress--loving that bird fabric and the feather fabric,too--just enough for interest...hugs, Julierose

I think there's something contagious going on. I got out 2 pieces of fabric last week to send a picture to a friend. Now, I want to sew with it and it's nowhere to be found! Where did you find your brown fabric?

'A bit squat' does sound like a challenge to demonstrate. I'm sure you'll get it all sorted out and nicely balanced soon.
Yey, for finding the illusive brown piece, that's a relief!

So glad you found your missing piece of fabric. Whether you use it or not, it could have been a regret. This is looking amazing!!

Gosh this is going to be a larger quilt than I had envisaged now you've mentioned the size of the tiles.
Good luck with solving the issue of where to position the large cross, I like your idea of working backwards!

I am so glad you found that fabric. Every time you look at this quilt you will be reminded of misplacing that fabric! LOL!!!

Good luck in work. I can not wait for the final result.

I am fascinated with your process and patience and willingness to allow time to work on your works and answer your questions. I have always been the opposite: impatient, fast, and focused on the outcome much too early. You may slowly be converting me!

Yippee for found fabric!

Mixing crosses of those brown and black fabrics add a lot of depth to your quilt.
