First quilt from the marbled fabric - Northwest Marbled

This is the continuation of the post about making an art quilt from marbled fabric.

I used skinny black strips of fabric to lay out the design on my design wall.   Then I pieced the rows to fit within the black strips.  Initially, I wanted a skinny 1" black strip to separate the rows, but I found that it was impossible to make them fit and keep the colored stripes running vertical.  So, instead, I cut 2" strips, then fit the pieces together, narrowing the 2" piece where necessary to make them look right to me.  I added 4" borders on all sides, then quilted the piece in white and black thread.  After it was quilted, I trimmed it to size.  

It measures 46" W x 49" H.   The title of the quilt is "Northwest Marbled".  

I hope you like it!
