In the last couple of weeks, I've added some wonky stars - see below - which were probably the most challenging to improv piece! To make this row match the top of my quilt, I also added a quarter log cabin and some chunks and strips sewn together. (That was a great way to use up the leftover bits that have been generated when I cut into the fabric for other blocks.) It was fun trying to figure out how to make that quarter log cabin be really wonky, and I like how it turned out!
Last Monday's prompt from Patty at Elm Street Quilts (my improv guru!) was to use all the leftover bits and pieces to make crumb blocks. Well, at that point, here is what I had to work with -
I turned these scraps into a long, narrow crumb block.
Then I added it to the left side of my piece -
This kind of sewing is good for my brain! Lots of "Hmmm, how will I make this work?" :)
We have two more weeks of Monday prompts, and then it will be time to finish my improv sampler up. It's very interesting NOT knowing how this will look when it's finished!
