Project Improv

I've been swept up in the excitement surrounding Jacquie's Project Improv. I've long admired stuff like this online but haven't done much of anything like it. So here was my reason to start cutting fabric at random and see what happens.

Here's my first block.

And the 4 that followed.

this and this were floating around in my brain for inspiration as I started. Aren't those pretty? My blocks don't really look like either of theirs, but I'm quite happy with how mine ended up too.

If you haven't already, give this improv stuff a try. It's fun!

It does look like a lot of fun. I wish I wasn't committed to so many other things at the moment.. but I am truly enjoying watching everyone working on this project. Your blocks are beautiful.

Beautiful! So bright and cheery, without being your typical "bright" colors! Love, love the polka dots! :~)

Dude! I clicked on the link and it went to MY blog. That was so cool! That has never happened to me before.

I am happy you liked my charity square! I want to make a quilt in those colors now. I love yours and the other linky you had. There is just so much awesome inspiration on the web!
