Deborah is designing November’s quilt in the Love Circle of do. Good Stitches. Through an organization called Wrap Them in Love, our circle of 10 makes quilts to benefit children who need a little extra love and attention. This month, Deborah has asked for scrappy improvisation blocks in pinks, greens, yellows, and oranges.
Of all the quilt styles out there, this kind of improvisation is my favorite, both to sew as well as to look at.
My right angles aren’t perfect, but there’s an order that emerges when I try to keep everything more or less in squares and rectangles.
I’ve tried the crazy-quilt style of improv, and I struggled a little more with the piecing of that approach.
Either way, these were fun, and I’m excited to get them done early this month!
Kelly offers a tutorial for scrappy improv piecing at My Quilt Infatuation.
