There's NO community like the QUILTING community,
there's NO community I KNOOOOOOW!
(Are you doing some high leg kicks? I am, in spirit. If I tried it in person I might break something. Like, say, my whole entire body.)
Okay, phew, back to the quilting thing...
Here's a beauty I started a while back. It has great sentimental value for me, because it was my first ever step into the world of improv piecing. I spent about 5 years reading and looking and listening before I dared attempt anything. Silly me, why did I wait? It's fun, and the whole point is you can't really take a wrong turn!
You cut up your fabric...
...you sew it together, and slice it and sew it together again (actually, this was exhilarating)...
...I surrounded mine by dark grey, because I love dark grey...
...I bravely pieced a back (another first for me)...
...and behold, an improv quilt!
