I decided on a scheme of blues/greens, teal and mauve.
First step was to cut them all into strips, sew them together, cut them into more strips, sew together. When I piece, I love adding thins slivers of gold to just lift it that little bit.
Here is the finished quilt top. It is in 2 pieces to try and ease the quilting. I am going to try out Norma Schlager's 'Divide and Conquer' method of quilting the two halves and then joining them together with a seam.
The piecing is very random. I do wish I had added more gold. I love the little gold strip structures that emerge.
Here's a closer look at the top half of the quilt. I said the piecing was random, but of course it is not an accident that there are lots of nice strips to fill with my FMQ continuous line designs!!
