Mental Block and A New Start

I am working on three art quilts right now.  I would love to just work on one at a time, but am having a little trouble with the design process.   One is ready to be quilted, but I don't know how to quilt it yet, so am still thinking on that.   The next one is making me look at what step comes next, and I am not 100% sure how to proceed.

I thought it best to move onto another art quilt if I am having all these stumbling blocks with the other two!   I have a design drawn up and steps to make this one come to fruition.

Here is my colour palette.   I have used my hand dyed fabric with a commercial print from Robert Kaufman.

I am starting the blocks for it and have two completed.




What do you think?

What do I think? I think I'm in love....LOL There is so much color and movement - it's gorgeous! Looking forward to seeing more. :)

The colour sure will be a strong feature, unless there are things going ontop, around, over, etc. I'm sure you will definately find a way to get through the tough stuff on all three projects. Sure is an ambiguous statement hey?!

I really like your fabrics and stitching for the centers. I have seen that Robert Kaufmann fabric before and wondered what one would do with it. I think your product is brilliant!
