Lava Lamps or Beads

I've continued my wedge play this week. As I continue my love affair with my random strips bin. This bin is a bit like Mary Poppins's bag. Scrappy Log was pulled from this bin, along with Change for a Jelly Roll. 
 I'm still working on a name for this one. The shape the wedges make remind me of lava lamps. They also remind me of beads. I feel the quilt has a hippie/bohemian vibe. So maybe the name should have something to do with that.
 I'm thinking of doing some big stitch in the background area. I think it will add a nice dimension to the quilt. 
The hand work should give me time to figure out the right name.

  1. This is such a fun scrap quilt! This quilt also reminds me of beads -- specifically the paper beads that I used to make from magazines as a kid!

  3. What a wonderful way to use up your scraps. They really shine on the neutral brown background.

  4. You have been very creative with your scraps! Also, you have a bottomless scrap bin! This design does look like beads and lava lamps, but it also looks like "bumper to bumper" canoes to me.
