Symmetry Challenge - Times Two

Pandemonium is my quilt top for the current challenge.

It was a long and winding road to completion -
you can read more about that journey
in previous posts here on the AHIQ blog
(use the Pandemonium label at the end of the post)
 and in the top's reveal post on my blog.

Ultimately the fabric on the left 
is what I've chosen to back Pandemonium.

(City View by Michael Miller)

Quilting will not happen until after the first of the year.

I had planned to use the leftover orphan bits
to piece a scrappy back for Pandemonium.

You can read THAT long and winding story HERE.

Instead of a back, those orphan pieces became
a second quilt top named Ukiyo.

(n: living in the moment,
detached from the bothers of life)

I pulled the yardage on the left from my backing stash
but again, FMQ will not happen until next year.

This symmetry v. asymmetry challenge
has been a very interesting process.

Ukiyo's asymmetry is far more obvious
while Pandemonium's is more subtle.

I wonder what the new prompt will be in January?

Two for the price of one! I love them both, though I bet it's no surprise that my eye is drawn to the less symmetrical one.

You’ve certainly met this challenge… in spades. Lovely work, Julie.

Lovely, Julie. Great use of your orphan blocks. Did you have to make many more to get to the right size?

Love the first one, but the second one is a gem too. You're making me want to get the orphan blocks out and see if they want to play!:)

I love your two asymmetrical quilt tops! They remind me of life, sometimes unexpected, sometimes lots of surprise but always a work of art.
The second top is my fav. Lots of contrast in color and arrangement, exciting!
