Project Improv update

Jacquie has started piecing the blocks into quilt tops.  They are beautiful!  I can't tell you the joy I felt when I saw my humble block in the second picture (here).  

Today, while I was feeling the spirit of it, I dug deep into my scrap pile and made some more.  I am starting to get the hang of it.  






Next up... 
Asha's Easter/baptism dress
some bibs and diaper totes for RS auction night
Kai's spring/summer clothes
Heather Bailey, Freshcut quilt

Wow these are really cool blocks - I love the colours and the 'wonky-ness' of them. Really inspiring!

Chelsea said...

Your first two blocks are my favorites but they are all great!

You are getting good! I don't know the name of that fabric but I will look for it when I go back to Elaine's quilt block this weekend. I saw it there the last time I was in.

Love those blocks. So much more that I did. I think I was a little bit literal. Oh, well. Great job!

アーシャちゃんバプテスマなんだね。おめでとう!

Heather BaileyのFreshcutかわいいよね。この間サンプラーを買おうと思ってショッピングカートに入れてたんだけど、会計する前に売り切れちゃったんだよ。悲しすぎる…。

カローラちゃん
サンプラーって6x6の正方形のセット?

Melissa said...

Is Asha really getting baptised? I like the squares. They are all very interesting.

カローラ said...

4.5" x 44"の39柄セットだよ。私が買おうとしたのはpop gardenだった。今見たらまた売ってるから買っちゃおうかな。いつもこうやってショッピングカートに入れるだけで、ぐずぐずしてるんだよね…。

ちなみにこちらです。

サンプラーは初めて見たよ。ファットクオーターだと$100ぐらいするから手がでないけど、これはいいね。pop gardenはあまりにも明るいから最初抵抗があったんだけど友達がはぎれをくれてね。とっても奇麗なの。最近作ったWhirlygiggleに入れたよ。

The quilt blocks are great. Looking forward to seeing your upcoming projects.

I tried to leave a comment yesterday, but Jennabee turned off the computer as I was writing it.

The quilt blocks are AWESOME! I love the modern look of them.

I need to return your recital book ASAP so you can start on a dress for Asha. I assume you are going to make one from that book. Those dresses are gorgeous! I'll try to get it to you by tonight.

Oh, and the dipaer totes were a hit. Thanks again!

Oh, I just love improv blocks and quilts. I've just got to break out of my shell and try those someday - it's just so scary. :) Yours look great! I love the colors!

Hi Marie - Your quilts are gorgeous! I love the improv and also the Card Trick one. So pretty. I can't wait to see more of your projects. You are one talented lady! p.s. You look so good! It is fun to see pictures of you and your family. Your kids are getting so big.
