This is a new exercise in freehand cutting. I like the look and even my family approves, which is not often the case. Especially my husband commented favourably - that is something I will have to mark in my calendar!
Since the whole thing went together rather quickly I will do a second one with even stronger constrasts - I chose mainly black background fabric and bought several fat quarters in very expressive red and orange hues. This should be even more expressive than the first try.
Somehow the colors remind me of a volcano, so the title will be "Lava" or "Magma" I think. Strangely while working on the first piece a format developed which I usually do not work in - this is a horizontal piece, while I usually make vertical ones.
