A new series?

I made another quilt with my Colorplay Twelve by Twelve scraps, using the same free piecing techniques as for this one.
Then I chose the colours for the next one, inspired by the pictures of water in my previous blog post. Here they are...
And here's the WIP...
My design wall looks like this today...
I'm not so sure there will be more than three quilts in this series. Or at least, I'm going to take a break from it, and start printing and painting my fabric scraps. I've had some new design ideas for  thermal screens and I need to try them out.
On the weaving front, I've got nothing new to show. Weaving is a very slow process, even compared with quilting.
And when I'm not in the studio, I'm spending a lot of time studying Japanese again.
In other news, summer is definitely over. The sky is grey and we lost more than 10°C in a few days. Never mind. I like autumn.
