I got out a slightly different palette one night and left it ready for me to begin the following day. I had decided to stick with the hot pink as before but instead of the yellow green, I went for turquoise and mustard.
The next morning I didn't like the colours as much. I decided to just use the turquoise and add a couple more blues.
I wasn't so keen on the triangle background that I had done last time, I felt that it didn't work well with the circles.

I went back to black and white stripes, but this time I pieced the stripes in the top third differently.
I was going for a group of circles to cover that join in the fabrics.

You can see that I had to add some orange spots, it looked too plain to just use the blues. I actually quite like it. I am surprised that it doesn't look top heavy and out of balance. Maybe all those stripes underneath the circles add some perceived weight!
It's just a fused top, no stitching around the circles or any quilting. It's just a design exercise and I don't want to waste time finishing it off unless I need to.
I wonder how many combinations of circles I will come up with?
Bye for now,
