New quilt started

This is the background for my new quilt for Voyage. For a number of years I was a member of an online dyeing group in which we swapped samples of color wheel dyeing. Because of this swapping I literally have thousands of 2,5"x2,5" square pieces of fabric. I don not need these samples anymore for color references so I am using them - slowly by slowly - in projects. This top is made from roughly 270 strips of fabric, in total 90 different colors. As it is for Voyage, the size is only 12"x17". After I took this picture I quilted it so my next step will be adding the applique.
I am linking this post to Nina-Marie's Off the Wall Friday's.

I'm intrigued, Wil -- it's such a colourful background.

As Margaret said, this will make a wonderful background. Can't wait to see what you use it for.

I love the background. Since the pieces are hand dyed and mottled, they do glitter. Looking forward to seeing what you put on it.
