This basket has been and will become some more improvised blocks. In my bid for teaching supremacy - okay, just one teaching job to start - I've been putting together class notes and a class sample. After all, you can't pitch a class without showing what you'll do.
Generally I don't like samplers, but I did want to be able to demonstrate a few different improvisational techniques. By no means are they the only ways to tackle improv quilting, but they are a good way to break free from patterns. These techniques are also about the process, not necessarily a final design result. There is design and then there is improv. One step at a time for breaking the pattern addiction.
Over the next week I'll share with you the finished blocks and ultimately the finished quilt top. That is, if I can find the time to finish all of it. I've got 12 of the 16 blocks finished, but the last few days haven't been very productive with a sick Hubby and our anniversary. And now the baby is sick so I'm not sure what naptime will bring. We do what we can.
