Improv underway

I've started on another improv quilt ... a graduation present for a friend who's just completing her masters degree.  She and her partner have been in their home for about 5 years, but just this past year were able to furnish their LR and DR ... chocolate sofa, with red side chairs and a teal blue ceiling ... so, those are the main colors in the quilt ...

I've not made one of these with such a bright pallet before ... I like heading in new directions.

I've also had a couple of questions on how I make these quilts, so I am documenting this one and will make a tutorial on some methods I use once I'm finished.  This quilt needs to be finished by the 11th ... so it should progress pretty quickly!

Tomorrow night I get to start on the blocks from my first quilting bee!  The Fresh Modern Bee 2 that Lynne has organized over on Flickr.

Have a great week.

All the best


  1. That flower block is a knockout - I love how it looks like a framed picture.

  2. Neat blocks! I'll be looking for your tutorial - this is a technique I haven't tried before....

  3. Great colors! I'm looking forward to seeing the finished quilt. Yea!!! A tutorial!!! :)

  4. Congratulations to your friend -- and lucky her, this is going to be a great graduation present.

  5. Oooo; another masterpiece in the making!
