More improv - a sampler in the making


This project is fun. It is turning into am improv sampler, a bit at a time. Once I fill all the space you can see on the design wall in that photo, it will be about 60" square.


I am enchanted by each bit I work on. This kind of sampler is just what I need after so many months of feeling less than creative. I keep thinking I should make a quilt out of each style of block I try.


The little squares are especially calling me. I do like the limited palette, it is forcing me to think about shades and contrast. I keep looking in my stash for more pinks and peach fabrics.


I especially love the triangle jumble. This is definitely going to be a block I make a whole quilt out of soon.

I'm going to make more of the plus and then some X blocks, and think of other improv blocks to play with to add. Hopefully there is time for more sewing during the work week.

Best,

Leanne
