30 Days of Improv Week 3

I'm participating in the #30daysofimprovqal hosted by @shannonfraserdesigns and @broadclothstudio.  Week 3 was all about triangles and these blocks were the most fun to make by far!

My favorite bits are the small little triangles - like the tiny one in the block on the upper right.

Gathering all the blocks together for a group picture was fun although one was missing - it slipped off the table and feel into the trash can  :-( but luckily I found it.   

One more week of prompts and then I get to assemble these together!

Have a wonderful day! Patty

Kawandi Quilt

I gathered all my Alison Glass scraps with a goal of using each fabric only once and embracing the different sizes of the scraps.   

I've give my Daylight Halo Go* a workout - stitching on the back porch in the early evening.  The included magnifying glass has made threading a needle quite easy!

To secure down both the middle row and the center row, I ran a line of X stitches along the edges.  I think it also adds some fun interest.

It's a very enjoyable process to just sit and stitch.   Even the back looks cool!

The quilt finished at ~ 12" x  18".  I can most definitely see myself doing another one!

30 Days of Improv QAL Check-in

I'm participating in the #30daysofimprovqal hosted by @shannonfraserdesigns and @broadclothstudio.  

Loving my fabric pull!

I went with a different color combinations for this one - using some large scraps and some small ones.  I've not yet used the wasabi so need to work that into week's 3s blocks.

Week 1 was all about string blocks.  Most of my cutting was done with a ruler.  The prompts included adding negative space and going with skinny strips.  I will likely cut these down even further when I get to composing the final piece.

The theme for week 2 was polygons.  These were a lot of fun to assemble.  I expect I'll be cutting these down in the future, especially that bottom one which looks like a mountain range.

It was fun to rearrange them a bit - I'm really enjoying my color pull.

It's not too late to join in and catch up!

Have a wonderful day! Patty
