I used straight line quilting in the dark rows, and wavy lines in the lighter rows. Kind of a darker reds = serious & steady, lighter pinks = playful kind of thing.
I think this was a much more successful project than the blue quilt. I do like the way I've given some organization to the colors, but still kept the individual strips somewhat random in size and distribution.
So far, the lesson learned with these first two quilts is what happens when you randomly distribute high and low value colors (your eyes kind of bounce around the entire quilt), and what happens when you organize them (eye movement is more focused). In these two examples, I definitely prefer the more organized approach. But I do think this is something I want to keep playing with.
