First Improv

There is a symmetrical quilt on my pin board in the making but I want to show you my very first improv quilt first. I always struggled with my sense of accuracy and the improv idea. For the first time I cutted without messuring and let the quilt develop on my pin board. It was fun, really. And my inner voice didn´t protest. That´s the best of it. I´m very pleased with the result. 




The backside is nice too, isn´t it? I discussed with Kaja how to find the perfekt quilting pattern and got a lot of ideas. But I´m not yet sure how I will do it.

So interesting the way that you used the lighter background fabric throughout. Really makes certain areas pop!

I'm happy that you shared this here, Doris. I am drawn to your pale backgrounds - an idea worth exploring, I think.

Setting those luscious pinks and greens on white lightens your whole quilt and the blacks add needed depth. Congratulations on finishing this top. I look forward to your quilting decisions.
