improv blocks

improv blocks

Here you can see my first attempt at improv blocks. Usually, I prefer to stick to a finished and thought out design or pattern and improvising makes me kind of nervous. This was really fun, though! The fabric pile had been in the works for some while now and includes some of my very favourite fabrics. Except for the two Habitat prints, I decided to go with prints that are pink, grey, black and white. I really like the effect so far and it is such fun sewing up new blocks!

The plan is to make the quilt as big as the fabrics at hand allow. I'm looking forward to see where it leads me!
