Plenty of inspiration keeps coming from the weather for this quilt....
Although this week-end it is actually supposed to stay sunny and warm!
I've been piecing the next round of blocks outside the center ones, roughing out the blocks on the design wall in order to keep the composition of the whole quilt in mind as I make those piece by piece decisions.
Taking digital pictures and viewing the quilt as a whole very small, on the camera, helps trouble areas pop out too.
The element of line is an important consideration for me in my crazy quilts, so I get that figured out first with the main "line items" (ha ha) first. And yes, I do veto them sometimes!
By pinning them up on the blank blocks, I try to keep things balanced. Not symmetrical, but balanced.
This is where things are as of this morning. To my surprise, some colored lace has crept into the mix. I need to do some more lace painting before I proceed further with the piecing!
