In the flavor of Gee's Bend

I finished the last installment of my guild's Brown Bag Challenge project. This quilter wanted participants to use solids, batiks, insert strip techniques, and have the flavor of string quilts or Gee's Bend. What a way to wrap up a fun Challenge! I nearly got carried away making these bits of patchwork. Here is a peek of my contribution.
Brown Bag Challenge: in the flavor of Gee's Bend.
My Brown Bag was inspired by a Claude Monet fabric panel of his paintings with some coordinating fabrics. The introductory post is here.

The accompanying Brown Bag Journal shows the original fabric swatches, but participants were encouraged to add more as they saw fit. Depending on what I receive at the October Challenge reveal, I might be inspired to add some free-form strip patchwork to the composition. I think it could complement Monet's Impressionistic style.
