Slice and Dice

This week I decided to give something new a try. Sort of a cut-and-sew, but I think it is more aptly termed slice-and-dice.

I randomly pieced together some scraps, then decided to add some gold strips by stitching them in and then cutting the main fabric and stitching the gold strip down on the other side.  I repeated the process until I had a maze like configuration of blue and gold. Then I did the same with multi-colored batik strips.

This bottom photo is the completed piece. What do you think? Now to name that piece. Initially I liked Yellow Brick Road, but now that the batik is added that doesn't seem right. It will come to me. Do you have any suggestions?

Tomorrow I will travel with friends to Lowell, MA for the quilt show and the Brush Gallery exhibit where friends Diane Cadrain and Diane Wright have pieces. It should be fun!
