Scrappy Bargello experiment, continued

A few weeks ago I was playing with some old strips from my scrap collection.  See the post from January 13.

I now have them all cut and sewn together and I must admit to being rather surprised at how good those fabrics look together.  I chose a wave type of pattern as that would distribute the colours fairly evenly across the top.
