new quilt

I have started a new quilt for Voyage.  Not much to see (yet), but I want to show you how I build a quilt. My starting point is a piece of fabric which I don't like but which is excellent for a backing. Besides the color wheels of last week I had also dyed 6 neutrals which I want to use for the background. With my roller cutter I cut out wavy strips. These strips I glued to the backing.
 I know that there are special glue sticks for fabric, but to be honest I just use a regular one. When all strips are in place I made a sandwich of it and started quilting it.
Unfortunately the picture I took of this did not turn out very well, so you just have to believe me :-) My next blog post will show the progress of this quilt.
I am linking this to Nina-Marie Off the Wall Friday.

I love the analogous colors, and your shapes. Why did you not care for your background fabric? It looks lovely to me...

To each her own, I guess. I love those colours and the way you've combined them...could be part of a sunset (or rise)...

WOW I love all the colours, they are spinglike and warm and exciting all at the same time. When are you off to visit Kelly again?
