Lilac Lovely - Improv Curves

Not a spec of white in this quilt top! In fact, quite the opposite of low volume for me. It is so rich and saturated in its colour. I absolutely love it.

As much as I love a perfect circle, I adore improv curves. Then again, improv is my language. There is something absolutely freeing about cutting a random curve and making it work. It requires letting go of sewing expectations. Frankly, that is the best part, in my opinion.

This particular quilt top started with a stack of 20 fat quarters, a rotary cutter, and a large ruler for squaring up. It comes together much faster than you think it does.

If you are interested in learning more about this technique join me at My Sewing Room this summer. I'm scheduled to teach this a few times and would love to have you join me.

What a great quilt! Love it. The lack of white makes it much more bold!

Yes. Very nice. How big are the finished squares?

I've been looking at your courses this summer, as I'm in Calgary. Yay! You've just convinced me I need to do this one. Love it. Can't wait to meet you and practice some curves.

Having read this I believed it was rather enlightening. I appreciate
you taking the time and effort to put this content together.
I once again find myself personally spending way too much time both reading and commenting.
But so what, it was still worthwhile!

This is a super quilt! ...and, silly me I just figured out that you will be in Victoria this weekend, a guest of the Victoria Modern Quilt Guild - I'm so sorry I will be missing seeing you and taking one of your courses, so I hope you will be back. I am just returning back to quilting after an exile of about 6 years, so the light bulb in my head is a bit ...slow!
