No plan, what am I doing?

 The pile of assorted purple scraps is dwindling as I make square-in-square pieces from it and add them to the growing pattern on my design wall.  I've seen art quilts made a similar way, I remember an all green one and a few that are yellows and reds. Some were made by Carol Taylor.  I liked what I saw and I've been thinking about doing something of the sort.  So that's what I've been doing. They are not all the same size and I'm not sure how I'm going to sew them together. I'm not sure how big the piece will become. For the moment it's a little like doodling. 

There are any number of more usual patchwork block quilts I'm thinking of making, some in the "Modern" vein, especially since I seem to have accumulated a lot of white that I could use in modern quilts.  But for now this improvazational method is working for me. And I'm wondering: what next?

Woah! That will be beautiful. Interested in how you sew it all together, but know you will find a way.

Thanks, Dy, believe it or not when I wake up around 3:00 I begin pondering what I'll do. I think I saw a picture in a magazine a couple days ago that has the answer.
