I think I told you that I had a passion recently to get out the solids and just "play". I really felt like trying to do something graphic, but still "me" (if that was possible) without any whimsey. (Sorry about that for all you whimsey lovers out there.) Actually, I wanted a challenge, if you will. Lately, I have been seeing so many abstract, colorful quilts that I just HAD to try it too! First I got out all my favorite colors and sewed up a storm trying to come up with a plan:

As of this moment, I am stuck, so I had lunch and looked at it, and looked at it again, and prayed that at this stage, I don't mess it up! So far, I'm really liking it and it seems to be designing itself, in a way. Perhaps, I am getting divine intervention, I don't know. All I know is that I really would like to finish the top today sometime. Only the first 3 sections are sewn together. See:
Now to fill in the blanks and try piecing the rest of this puzzle together! E-gads! Wish me luck!
