I'm back to freewheeling, and there are no pears in sight.
It did occur to me that my pear pieces may NOT actually constitute a series, despite the fact that they share a common theme. I've been looking at series and they seem to share more; color palette, mood, etc. That means that "creating a series" gets added back to the to-do list, but it's now at the bottom and has to work its way up just like everything else :-)
In the meantime, I wanted to do something with all the batik scraps that have been building up, so I followed the suggestion in Art Quilt Workbook to create a "wonky" piecing. This is a modified log cabin block that I love doing because perfect measurements and seamlines aren't required.
I made the block and then sliced it into 4 triangles, then added the center piece. I wanted something calm and serene to play off all the energy of the fabrics, so I added the hibiscus applique in the center. I think it will be nice when I'm finished; I just haven't decided whether to add an additional border around the outside.
