Freeform Quilt done!

I just finished my freeform art quilt... don't have the hanger right yet, but I couldn't wait to see how it would look hanging:
I did change the piece I originally had in mind for the upper left corner, and think it balances the piece better. Then I flip-flopped over whether to hang it this way or flip it 180 degrees... this way finally won. I used pre-dyed cotton crinkle cloth to bind it, and a commercially dyed fabric for the backing. I still need to add the label. All in all, I'm pleased with how this turned out... I was able to use some of my dyed fabric, AND I successfully created a piece that isn't square or rectangle. Next? Hmmmm.... maybe three dimensional? Why not!

Very adventurous, indeed. Something I haven't tried but it sure looks like a fun piece!
