Quilt - Temple
This quilt is a collage of fabrics, many of my own surface design experiments. As I recall I got stuck in the design and turned it upside down and that put me back on the right track.
I read a great book that helped me learn how to make collages. It is by Robin Williams (no not the actor) and its called The Non Designer's Design Book. I would recommend it highly. It is actually for type, but the universal principles were laid out simply and my light bulb went on. The one principle that really stuck to me was "ALIGNMENT". Rather than just slapping something on willy-nilly, line it up with something! Simple and very effective.
