I was in the mood for some piecing so I pulled out the fabric I had dyed while doing my Easter eggs and I started cutting very thin strips. I used the blue as my background and in addition to the other brights from my Egg colouring leftover dye, I pulled out other interesting brights, stripes, etc.
The strips were cut 5/8th of an inch wide, allowing for scant 1/4" seams as I pieced. I started by randomly cutting the blue into two pieces and then inserting one of the narrow strips. Because of how narrow the strips were, I found it necessary to press each seam before I could proceed. After inserting the first strip, I randomly made another cut to the piece and added a second strip. You want to start with a piece that's a bit wider than you hope to end with because each time you add a strip you are loosing almost 1/2 an inch and only gaining a very narrow strip (about 3/8th of an inch)Here's what the piece looks like so far. Now I'm going to add some machine quilting and maybe some hand stitch. I have no idea where I'm going with this piece...just playing for now.
