I toyed with a lot of ideas and decided to go with one more with fine-line piecing since they are so much fun to do. I went to my small box of solids and was determined to use what was in there and not buy anything new. I originally wanted do something bright, but they were not in the box, so I went with some very "un-Norma" colors. I had a lot of browns left from Brown Planet and I picked a coral, a bright pink, a very pale blue and very pale green although those last two read pretty much the same in the quilt.
What surprised me was how the pinks receded into the background and the pale colors jumped to the front. I liked that!

Again, I decided to do a lot of free-motion quilting in the open areas. It's a little hard to see the brown thread on the brown fabric, but it does give an added interest. If you click on the photo to enlarge it, you can see more detail and more of the quilting.
I'm linking up with Off the Wall Friday. Go see what some very talented artists are doing this week.
