my new color explosion wip

I've started working on a new project this afternoon and I'm totally in love. Want to see? Ta-daaa!!!

I found this poster on Pinterest a while ago and I thought right away that all these gorgeous colors would look marvelous in a quilt. So, this afternoon, I got all my solids together


and started cutting.

Surprisingly, it did not take that long to cut all these triangles, or maybe I was just enjoying myself too much and did not even realize how much work it really was.

And then it was off to my design wall ( it did look pretty sad and lonely the last couple of days since I finished my granny blocks - but on that later this week).

First, it looked like this

I kept adding more, 

and more, until it looks like this.

I still have more triangles to add and I'm sure I'll be reshuffling some others, as well. I don't even know what it's going to be, maybe a wall hanging, or another pillow, or a mini quilt, no idea so far. I'll see how big, or small it will turn out to be after I sew all these 2.5" triangles together.

For now, I'm just really excited to be working with this mix of beautiful colors. It brightens my mood just looking at it. And who knew that solids could be so exciting? Not me, that's for sure. I have always preferred pattern fabric over solids. This project is definitely helping me to appreciate solids as stars, not just supporting actors. How about you? Do you prefer patterns or solids?
