Solids exchange almost done

Solids quilt inspired by Matisse

I'm almost done with my solids challenge quilt, I made a few additions to the piece I started with.  To bring out the black zigzags on the red background, I made red-and-black wavy fabric pieces; I think it adds  something to the design.  

Next I'll join the blue piece with the red and black piece, add them to the right-hand side and do some trimming. 

I'm thinking of adding a plain red strip across the top... blue strip at the bottom?  That blue on the right sort of sticks out, how shall I corral it into the overall design?  all the gold seems to be bunched together in one spot... and what shall I do with the left side? Decisions, decisions...

Any ideas??

Am loving the red & black wavy stripes... maybe some blue and black waves for the left hand side?
Can't wait till I get moved and my sewing room back so I can join y'all!

I really like this one. I think the gold serves perfectly as a focal area. The way you have this laid out works very well. It appears very balanced in color and elements. Great quilt.
