Making new fabric


I have been busy making more traditional type quilts lately, so I decided to take some time to play today.  I emptied one of my scrap baskets, and found larger scraps than I usually play with.  This is where I decided to start.  I started with some scraps I cut from a pieced border on one of my convergence quilts.  Then I grabbed some leftovers of the African fabric.  The rest was just grab and stitch.  This is what I came up with.

This piece is 12" x 12" so far.  I am thinking about doing some "What if I . . . . " but that will wait until tomorrow.

These fabric combinations are terrific with the strong patterns. Something interesting is happening here.
