I just want to make more and more stripes. See what I can do. Learn something new. Some customers want a large piece made like this. One customer said that upon looking more closely at it she thought there was a traditional aspect to the quilt. Another found it "trippy". His word--not mine.

These little strips are nothing new for me actually. Sure I haven't done them for a while but in some of my earlier quilts I used to work with silks in the tiniest pieces possible. Eventually it became too tedious. It was technique not art and I wanted to simplify my work. Get back to the message I was trying to convey. The work had become too precious.
But maybe this is why I am so fascinated by these little stripes. I don't know. Anyhow, now is the time for my trusted customers to weigh in. What do you think? Do you miss the more organic wedges that I have been using? Are you fascinated by the wedges? What about the energy of the stripes?
