Free Form

As an update to yesterday's post, let me  show you my reconstructed block.

Remember these two blocks? Rather than making opposing angles for the wonky 9s, I did these on parallel angles. So they didn't fit in.
One of them was slashed  and added to and became this wild free form block - it may become a mini quilt.
What would you suggest that I add to the top blue section?  Fusing something there could make it more interesting. Right now that expanse of almost solid may be a bit too strong. It seems to overpower the piece.
If it doesn't work out as an art piece I can always put it on the back of a quilt.

Comments are welcomed. I will reply when possible unless otherwise stated.

Hi Gene, I've been following your posts for several days. Love the scarves you've done. The colors are wonderful.

For the free-form block, I think I'd slash that top dark blue section a few times for some added interest. I love to slash blocks that don't fit or that I don't like. They also make great strips for things like book covers and eyeglass cases.

I see you are using your new found knowledge from your new book. I agree the blue section needs something. How about some of that yellow.

You are so creative and artistic that I am sure you will find the right solution :)

Where the vertical dark blue linear shapes contact the large dark blue area at the top, continue the linear shapes , but change them over to the white color. On the left continue the diagonal yellow line through the dark blue area.

I would slash that large blue area horizontally 2 or 3 times.
