In designing this quilt, my thoughts were to use the blue-green colors and soft organic shapes to portray my quiet interests of reading, quilting, music and being at home by myself. The bright, bold orange and yellows with straight sharp lines show my more outgoing, adventurous side that likes to hike in the mountains and go scuba diving. I choose to do raw edge applique and zigzag the edges to outline and highlight the different shapes and fabrics so they didn't all blend together. Does it work as a design? Does it say "self-portrait" to you?
