I was at the market the other day and I saw these rambutans ( not spelled right) and I loved the colors so I checked out my stash and put this together.
I like it much better in person but still feel something isn't right about it, too busy? No real focal point? Maybe I can do some interesting quilting....

The start of something new I like this.
I thought I needed to change size.... hummmmm
I kept going but was not happy and threw it away 3 times....
Then I added the big flame.... it made me cry I hated it so much

This is the final out come, I am very happy with it it and will have Hong do some interesting hand quilting to it.

The things I have learned while working on this is to stop second guessing my self, this was my vision when I started this but I thought I needed to make it more interesting by changing size and direction, all that did was make the piece look forced and make me want to throw it away. I also changed the name, it was Nights Fire but people got confused because the "flames" were going the wrong direction so now I'm naming it African Print.

I have had a few people say that this piece would look better upside down.... what do you think? I could go either way....

Well this is finished to the point where it will go to the hand quilter!!! I am very happy with this. Its 29x42" I croped the photo but Im pretty sure that it will finish far from square, I like that natural curves of the edges of the quilts I make, my work is not perfect and thats the way I like it!

I am thinking of doing another quilt in the same technique but way different colors, will see what happens, Ill keep you posted!

Here is a new piece I am working on! I started this on Monday and maybe Ill finish in a couple of days then off to Hong for hand quilting! I like the way the color moves, I had to play with it a while to get it the way I liked it but I am happy!

I cant help it.... the cute cat shot! He loves to get in the fabric even when its 100 degrees out! He has now discovered the out of doors! I just hope he remembers where his food is!
