Fun With Improv Quilting Techniques

                                             Here's a photo of what's on my design wall now. I've been having great fun using modern improv techniques to slice and dice commercial fabrics as well as my own printed and painted fabrics to design this latest quilt. Have tried  a wonky log cabin block, a checkerboard and one of my very favorite techniques, the skinny inserted line technique.


  1. I love this. Both the original fabric and what you are doing. I need to try that. Thanks for sharing.

  2. Thanks Judy! I've been looking at books by Sandi Cummings, Roberta Horton and Jean Wells. I like the advice from Horton's book "The Fabric Makes the Quilt," "If it's too big, cut it off. It it's too small, add onto it." It's very freeing!
