Here's a look at what I've been working on.
I started with the "jelly roll" strips in blues, browns, and creams, then added the bright green, rust, and turquoise that I bought as fat quarters. No pattern, just added them as I felt like it. They make me think of leaves floating in a river. Or something like that. I planned from the beginning to do the green strip, but only decided to add the brown border (and the green going into it) once the inside was sewn. Because the result is to have the green bar look like it's floating, I wish the long bars and short bars had continued all the way across- matching so as to reinforce the floating idea. Maybe next time....
