If you follow me on instagram you'll know that this is not a recent project. But since I'm *trying* to keep my blog a little more current and updated you get a an oldie but goodie. :)
Last fall our guild had a SOLIDS Only challenge. The deal was to create whatever "quilted" item we wanted used only solid fabrics. I put it off until the very last minute, pulled out some practice blocks I had stashed away and went to town on some improv.
Improv is a funny thing for me. Sometimes I'm not sure if my design will end up as pure genius or purely junk. It's a fine line, I think. :)
I was able to come up with a little something I liked in the end.
Some matchstick quilting finished it off nicely.
I had planned on just turning it into a wall hanging mini quilt or something like that but decided I wanted it to be a bit more functional.
Instead I took an old couch cushion I had been hanging onto for some unknown reason and used it for the inside of a giant floor pillow covered in my new design.
The floor pillow seemed way more functional than another mini hanging on my wall.
My kids have used it a ton, so I'm happy.
So, I'd like to know...
Do you like or dislike Improv? And why?
