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

HST and HRT August BOM update

I really loved the blocks for both June and July (above) and August (below) from the Modern HST BOM .  I fell a bit behind and batching to do them together worked well!

And all my lovely 8 blocks together in a group shot.  Aren't these fun?

When the QAL started, you were told how many HSTs and HRTs you would need for the whole quilt and you could size them anyway you wanted to get the finish size that would work for you.  My blocks will finish at 8" which means my HST or squares finish at 2".   I made all my HSTs ahead of time and then paper piece the HRT once I see the block.

Have a wonderful day! Patty
