What Was I Thinking? Progress Report-Finished

What Was I Thinking?   37" x 37"
This is my completed piece for Karen Musgrave's challenge with a pink/brown 50s fabric, using techniques from Rayna Gillman's new book Create Your Own Free-Form Quilts: A Stress-Free Journey to Original Design.  I must admit that the random piecing, slashing, rejoining of units is far from my normal method of working, but I thought the challenge would be fun, so I participated. It's sometimes healthy to get out of one's comfort zone and see what happens.

For a sense of organization, I made two types of strip sets--pink with vertical slashes, and yellow ones. The yellow ones are somewhat joined on the diagonal. The pink/brown challenge fabric was only used as vertical strips, randomly placed about the piece.
