If I were into perfection I would not show this quilt. That bowed lower hem was not intentional, in fact, it looked perfectly straight on the work table. The final shape has to do with unequal amounts of quilting, plenty in the middle and almost none on the edges. I hung this and thought about simply cutting all the edges off and doing a very slender binding - I might yet.
In fact this is basically a doodle -- I had all these bits of color in little scraps I didn't want to throw away so I cut them into rectangles,1x2, and played with them. I had no plan about balancing the circles and the rectangles, just wanted to see what my playing would produce. This is it. I enjoyed putting the colors in different places. As I say, it's in the nature of a doodle. And, if I live with it like this for a while and get bored quickly, then I will probably cut off the borders and simply bind the central rectangle with the interesting little stripe I have along the edge or simply with black or a bright color that will be turned to the back.
