Process, quilt for spring

I feel like making a quilt. It seems like it's time for a new one. I'm just going to cut this all up into 2" strips and spend a day making log cabin blocks, listening to Bob Dylan and Willie Nelson on Pandora and the March wind outside batter and rattle the windows.
These looked like spring when I laid them out, but now I see all the russets and plums and grays. I think I'll add some green, more pink. The fabric audition is such an important part of this process, it seems like I spend more time on that than I do on any of the sewing, but it's so much fun, too. Standing in front of the cupboard and hauling out possibilities, stacking them on the table, walking around them in different light, adding and subtracting things; I don't know, I just really like that.
