during Debbie's Improv Stripes QAL, I've known that I wanted to play more with this kind of sewing.
When a sweet friend gave me a bunch of Kona scraps leftover from a quilt she recently finished, I decided I would use them to create some more Improv Stripes!
First, I cut a bunch of wonky, wedge-shaped stripes out of the 4 inch wide pieces.
Then, I began sewing stripes together, randomly matching colors until I had groups of seven stripes sewn together. Two of these blocks were sewn together to form a roughly 5 x 6 inch rectangle.
I also added some longer, skinnier stripes to the sides of a couple blocks, just to see what might happen.
This is definitely just meant for playing with, and is a "Who knows where it will end up?" kind of project! The blues and greens are refreshing to sew with, after finishing up my Christmas projects!

Am loving all those beautiful cool colors!
those were some mighty fine "scraps" looks more like yardage to me.
it is fun to just grab fabric and start putting it together without the benefit of a pattern but just an idea isn't it. Those are pretty neat colors
Oh what fun! I made an Improv Stripes quilt too and it was one of the most enjoyable projects I've made. It was so much fun to just sew strips together and not have to measure or worry about perfection. Your quilt will turn out gorgeous with those great colors! I love it already!
Yummy! The colors look great together and I really like the taller bits you put in. What fun!!
I like the blues and greens. Have fun seeing where it goes!
Those colors are perfect together, fun with wedges!
Hope you enjoy your "freeing" sewing project. I love the taller strips btw, too. Merry Christmas!
Lovely colour combination.
