Improv Here I Come!

Wow, it is a tough quilting theme.
The only thing I could compare this to is the television show, "Whose Line Is It Anyway?"
I enjoyed watching it off and on during its run from 1998 to 2007.

 But, quilting?

I decided to write down on slips of paper some things to work with. I wrote 3 of my favorite blocks and 5 colors based on which drawers of scraps held the most. I selected one slip of paper from the blocks category and 2 from the colors category. I chose log cabin blocks and the colors blue and orange.
(And, yes, the oranges are bright orange but the lighting didn't help!)
I decided improv would mean I couldn't use any particular measurements (until I was ready to finish it up). I could use the rotary cutter and/or scissors. I couldn't baulk on the fabric scraps I picked or how the seams got sewn.

I am ready to add the quilting and all should be ready for the reveal on November 1!


  1. Log Cabin....yes that is a great block for improvising AND using scraps. Great idea!

  2. I'm looking forward to seeing how this has turned out. Nancy. I took a similar approach to limiting the fabrics. It's interesting that, although the possibilities for improv are endless, it seems to require a lot of constraint to actually begin!

  3. Improv is harder than it looks isn't it! Sounds like you are having fun though :)

  4. Excited to see the result! :-)
