I'm admitting right now, though, that I am more of a Drop Everything and TRY it kind of gal. My squirrel moments don't always end up in completed projects. (Like last month's DrEAMi project. Still mulling over where I want that one to go!)
So this month, I decided to participate in a new QAL, the PlayImprov QAL over at Elm Street Quilts. This seemed tailor-made for someone like me who has been fascinated by improv quilting, but just didn't know where to start. I posted about my initial block making try in this post, and you can read lots more about this QAL at Elm Street Quilts here.
The first block we made was a wonky log cabin. Here's mine -
This week's prompt was to make improv triangles. The idea is to NOT use your rotary cutter and rulers, but to cut odd shaped pieces with your scissors, or even to use leftover bits and pieces to create these triangles.
Since I'm using a set of Kona solids for this project, I just cut a few triangular sort of pieces, and stitched away!
I'll admit to some measuring and trimming up, but I didn't know any other way to make these fit into this -
Because one decision I did make about this QAL was that I didn't want to end up with another set of blocks that required more work to become something finished! Lol! So, I thought, why not start with my log cabin as the center, and add on as I tried new things each week? I think this will work!
Trying something a little out of my comfort zone - without a real plan - who knew it could be so much fun?!
Linking up with Sandra at MMM! Quilts for her monthly DrEAMi linkup. See you there!
