I've been thinking about stripes and dots. The stripey strip in the bottom of the photo was laying out on my cutting table so I cut off a square, sliced it into quarter-square triangles, played around with the QST's a bit, and then looked for a dot to go with it. The dots are half-square triangles.
I suspect this wasn't the best stripe to use but this little experiment has led to some ideas for a new quilt. More experimentation is called for!
