These are the Kona Cotton solids that I've been working with during the Play Improv QAL hosted by Patty at Elm Street Quilts. Bordeaux, Pomegranate, Citrus, Cactus, Pool, and Oyster. I love those names!
I've posted quite a bit about this project in the last month or so, mainly because I am having so much fun trying the prompts that Patty gives us each week. This week's prompt was *Strips and Curves!*
The piece I've been working on has a lot of strip piecing in it. That's been a fun way to fill in some spaces and use up the scraps that have been generated, for example, in this corner from a few weeks ago.
But... Curves? Scary! (For me, anyway!) Thankfully, Patty always includes a short tutorial with her weekly prompt, and I also found this post by Debbie from A Quilter's Table, and carefully read the section on piecing improv curves.
I started with two strips - bordeaux and pool - of about 5 x 22, followed the tutorials, and ended up with this section that I added to the bottom of my project.
Hey, those went together really easily, and they were fun! Who knew?! :)
To make this section fit, I cut off two pieces from each part that were about 3 x 6, and I decided to keep going and use those up. What I found out was that curved piecing is addictive! I just kept adding another section, and another section, and...
This piece was sewn onto the left side of my project - and here's what it looks like now!
So. Much. Fun! No wonder this QAL is called "Play!"
Angela at SoScrappy has chosen multi-color fabrics for our April Rainbow Scrap Challenge projects, so I'll be heading into my sewing room to see what I've got that fits in with that idea. Sounds like fun to me! See you over at the Scrap Happy Saturday link-up tomorrow, too.
