Improv corner block quilt

I finally finished it!  This quilt has probably taken me longer than any other I've made!  I started the blocks over New Year's weekend and got about 9 finished before setting the quilt aside to think through what to do with them.  This is my first attempt at improv blocks ... I got better and more creative over time. 

I love the mix of the blues and greens.  Initially, John didn't like the blocks ... now that he sees the finished quilt ... he wants one for us (I have about 75% of the blocks I need for another quilt already made ... wonder how long it will take for me to get to the remainder?).

Each block is comprised of 1 print and then multiple solids (including white)


The binding is Kona Sweet Pea (one of my favorite colors). 

I'm happy with how the colors all work together and how the white ties it all together! 

This one is for my friend Jeannine ... she started a new job in January ... after a 10-month hiatus.  This is to celebrate a tough, interesting and growth year!
