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.




  1. It’s good to see you posting. I’m enjoying watching your progress.
