And Here is my Answer!


i dove right in and stayed up way too late but in the end this is what i had to showe for it. My obvious inspiration came from here.

improv piecing is very liberating...more than i remembered. i love how it creates itself.





I did the contrast of warm and cool blocks since that is how i had sorted my fabric earlier in the day.

maybe i will make more of these and see how they look together. i don't know. Or maybe it will just be another mini quilt.

Girl, you must have been REALLY inspired.......that was QUICK !

Good job, too. I need new potholders....you can go ahead and make another 2 or 3 to go with that, right? A little more blue next time, please !

LOL !

Keep going! That would be an awesome quilt.

Catherine said...

Yes this is the perfect scrap block. I think these blocks would be lovely made up in a quilt.

Wow - that's awesome! Such a a fun use of scraps. If you don't want to do a whole quilt, it would be a great pillow!

Your improv piecing looks great. I may have to try that some time.
