Here are the fabrics I chose for my Improv Quilt.

My friend,  Denise, is teaching an Improv Class that she is calling Magic Numbers.  From all of the fabrics I am cutting several squares and rectangles of "magic" sizes:  3 1/2 inch squares; 3 1/2" by 6 1/2" rectangles and 6 1/2" by 12 1/2" rectangles.  After cutting these components I am using a design wall to "build" blocks.
This week's first blocks look like this:

Next week we are to start quilting them.  She has suggested some free motion quilting.  Hmmm, I am not sure about that.  I really do like the straight line quilting on my modern quilts.  Stay tuned.

  1. I love the colors and the fabrics! :)
    Greetings from Finland! :)
    Hugs, Ulla

    1. Hugs back to you, Ulla! Glad you found the Frogpond and left a comment. Thank you.

  2. Free motion? Bah! Follow your instincts, Sandi. Straight lines areI easy, contemporary, and they suit your design. (I gave up on fm a long time ago - too stressful for me:-)) Glad you've found my book an inspiration and you are lucky to have a great MQG nearby!

    1. Thank you, Rayna, for your comment. I find fm awfully stressful. I am much better at straight lines. Thanks for stopping by my blog.
