Looking for secondary patterns and lines

I've spent some time looking at my pattern, finding lines and shapes that I like and want to emphasize.  Lines that will take your eyes into the piece and keep your attention there (hopefully!).

I'm also looking at all of my fabrics again.  There are several stronger ones that I want to use sparingly, ones with very dark or very light values.  And one predominantly yellow fabric that I've placed along the middle.  That last one seems a bit out of place, a little too saturated in color.  I'll have to watch it and see how it gets along with everything else as the remaining fabrics are chosen.

  1. It"s very interesting to see your process. Looks like you break things down into smaller sections. Are the sections paper pieced or do you use them as templates? Is any part appliqued?
