Intentional Improvising.

I had hoped to do most of the piecing for these 12 inch improvisational blocks at our Common Threads meetings. I wanted something that I could easily work on away from home. The top and bottom strips in the corners need to be wide enough for seam allowances and unfortunately I need to focus on that and not on all the wonderful activity around me. I have them cut, pieced and ready for the next sewing bee and I'll try again with the little centre squares. I wish I had bought lots more of the theme fabric. I luv the colours and the circles. I can get 18 nine patch blocks from my metre of fabric. Then I'll see what I can do next.

The table is cleared for the journal quilt due tomorrow. Then I'll take down and baste the quilt on the design wall so I can get my blocks from the Process Pledge up for viewing. I am happy to report that five things a day seems to be working well so far.

Love the color, where did you get the dot fabric? The center square is great. But I agree with you the strips might need to be wider to account for the seam allowance. I enjoy learning about the process.

Oh I love these colors and fabrics together. I can't wait to see the progress on this.
