Just faffing around idly and came up with this. You don't get the full effect of what I'm going for here until it's quilted in...uh...pointy swoops (lean back and squint - it looks better) but I kinda have to decide what to make of it first.

Car keys for scale. What do you reckon? Big cushion? Start of another ill-planned scrap quilt? Bin it? Does anyone have an inventive use for this?

You could make it a wall hanging.
Or a small table cloth.

I think this actually looks really cool!

I'm looking to send my Step-Sister's Choice quilt to a new home.  If you're interested in swapping for fabric/scrapbooking supplies, send me a PM.

I really like it!  Smiley I can see it as a wall hanging or a cushion/pillow of some sort. Very pretty design!

Thanks  Smiley It's just a small practice piece to see if I could get the swoopy 'V' thing going. The strips are 1/4" thinner each time, but I think on the real thing I'm going to change it so it's it bit more of a dramatic than a gentle swoop. It's going to be done in like a rainbow progression of colours, depending on what I've got tucked away in the suitcase o'scraps.

I think a large mat for a table, like a table runner, but not as long would be lovely.  You could use it as a Thanksgiving centerpiece.

It's a great bargello design ... I like the colours, too. It would be a fantastic wall hanging.

I love the look of this!  I'd say a pillow or wall hanging.  Be sure to post pictures when you finish this one.

I can't wait to see the rainbow one you are planning to make!
