Abstract progress

I started to work on the abstract rug for the 2010 Abstract Challenge. It is tentatively called "Baptism by Fire". I am waffling the entire area using 6-cut. I am discovering that the 6-cut is a little more difficult to waffle because it creates a very tight mat. So I'm a little concerned about that. I'll try to address that issue as I hook the mat. I'm using swatches #101, 102, 103 and 104.
