Still more freeform!

I didn't get a chance to play yesterday, and haven't had a lot of time today. But I did get a square done:
The center is a batik square I got last summer. It is bordered by two hand dyed fabrics from my stash, then the final borders are of commercial fabrics. I'm finding it interesting to see what I can combine, and the result I get from auditioning various combinations. It's also very nice to be using some fabrics I have had in my stash for a very long time, like the strips on the outer top and bottom!
My challenge for myself now is to look beyond the basic strips and squares, and start doing more slicing and dicing to add interest. Fun and scary! More to come...
