Solids Swap Challenge Part 2

This is my picture. Totally different from my swap partners choice.

To make this a real challenge I used my color wheel to pick out a color combination to use. Selected a triad of yellow-green, red-orange, and blue-violet. Again I thought I had a large solids collection, after all I have taken 2 Nancy Crow workshops, but could have used a bigger variety. I'm tempted to order 1 yard cuts of the entire Kona Cotton collection. Maybe I should ask for this for my birthday!.

Solids, but not a good picture. They are pretty close to the color wheel.
  I finished the piece. It was entirely improvisational cutting,  (no rulers were used in this piece) which is my favorite way to work. I know I didn't get the proportions correct from the inspiration, but I plan on making more of these.  My husbands comment "That's interesting, you made a fence." No- but it could make a nice placemat. I like it but want to try again with different colors and proportions. And am looking forward to the quilting. Again will use free motion quilting with rayon thread.
Finished but not quilted.
