Rectangles............

A few days ago I started a colorwash with 2.5" x 4.5" rectangles.  This is all regular quilting cottons, no batiks.  I have a gold and orange area to fill in as well as 2.5" squares to fill the gaps on top and bottom.  Then I will look at it for a couple days before sewing it together and possibly move a few pieces.

Your creativity never ceases to amaze me. You are the only person I know who may possibly have more fabric than me. I look forward to reading your blog every morning.
Pugs and kisses,

I love the play of colors in this so far.

Interesting to see the development of the piece, which is gorgeous. One of these day I am going to do a water color thing ;)

Beautiful, and using rectangles gives it an interesting twist.

Just when we think we have seen it all, you develop a new twist to keep it interesting and us guessing. Of course I love it. thanks for sharing your process photos.

All right, I am going to start the colorwash. I had a lot of projects that had to be done and they are off the wall. I will try the square colorwash pieces that I have collected and from you. I will start in the center with the lightest and try not to get confused.

OOOOOOOOOOOOOWWWOOOOWWWW! Love that one. I see that you start in the center and work with the lights first. I really like that you used rectangles on this one it really gives it a nice look.

This reminds me of a couple of quilts I did with batiks very similar to this. I gave both of them away - one to Ricky Martin and the other to Tico Torres.

I never tire of seeing this technique and watching it emerge.

OK.......next time I meet you, I want to see your thought process on how you lay one of these out! The colors simply melt into one another, and the lightest portion almost looks like it is glistening! Bravo!

I've never made a "colorwash" quilt before so I am really excited to see one in progress here. I thoroughly enjoy your blog and look for it every single day. Thank you for your wonderful blog and the time you take to share it every day. What an inspiration you are! Have a wonderful week Wanda! :)

Love the way the rectangles stick out at top and bottom; but I expect you'll have to just chop them off in the end, right?
