#20 WIP Wednesday: Geometric ???

I have had this fabric for about two months that I really wanted to do something with. It is a beautiful dyed piece of fabric from Vicki Welsh. Here is her shop if you want to check her out:

I saw a painting of just squares set on a plain background. All the squares were different sizes and I thought that is what I will do, only piece them on a slight curve. Well when I finished piecing there was just too much white for me.

To much open space for me.

So I went thru my stash and found a batik that I liked with it. I decided to appliqué lines in different directions through the white. Then I went ahead and satin stitched them all in place with a deep purple that went with the darkest part of the dyed fabric.

After 12 bobbins I finally have all the satin stitching done! Yahoo. I then squared the quilt up. Remember I pieced it on a slow curve so nothing is square in the quilt.  Basting and figuring out my quilt design comes next!
