My latest Improv quilt. Its been a work-in-progress since the beginning of September. I have had it pinned and ready to quilt for weeks, but I couldn't decided on how I wanted to quilt it.
I love Improv. Its such a blast to start with an idea and see where it takes you. It gives me freedom and lets my creative 'artsy' side take over.
This quilt was an idea that turned out so much better than expected! I wasn't sure if what I saw in my head would make it to the design wall.
One of my favorite things about this quilt is all the colors are hand dyed fabrics! (except the gray and white). My daughter is a Fiber Major and has been sharing her education with me! We get some pretty amazing colors. This was the first BIG project where I used all hand dyed. They are all so pretty that I hate to cut them up - now that is a WIP right there!
I started with a variety of yellows and gradually added peachy/oranges. Ending with lots of delicious pinks! The gradation of the colors came together nicely. The shades melt together and actually resemble the idea I had in the beginning.
I'm nearly finished with the quilting. I decided to go with an all over geometric design. I think once its washed and the crinkle goodness happens...it will be perfect! I can't wait to see and share it!
This little creature is Mary. She loves to make sure you haven't forgotten her during any quilting project! And for the record, this quilt is not for you little Mary Christmas!
