Improv Quilt for Elliott


It's my first fully-improvosational quilt. This one is for my younger brother's birthday. He's pretty trendy and cool (but don't tell him I said so). What better kind of quilt for a modern kind of guy?


I'm using Anna Maria Horner's Good Folks collection in the Adriatic colorway. I also added some solids in deep blue, light grey, and olive green. The plan is to sash each crazy block with white to make them 12.5" square, then piece them together 4 blocks by 6 blocks. I don't know how I'll quilt it...this is totally on the fly and I love it! I don't even know which way is up for these blocks...






It does create quite the mess, though ;)
