Tuesday Talk

Happy Tuesday!
Hope your day is starting off great!  This is just a quick post.  I am running out the door for a busy day today.  I have lots to do and I hope to get some sewing in later today!
Question for the day?
Do you do a lot of improv piecing or do you usually follow a pattern?
I used to only follow a pattern because that was the only thing I knew to do.  Now, I am venturing out, and trying improv.  Below are two blocks I made for the charity quilt for our guild.  I had these colors and some strips left from a recent project, so I decided to make several blocks.  Now these blocks are not real funky or wonky.  They are just pretty straight forward, but they worked out perfectly for the quilt.  I like clean lines, so this is what I came up with.
Let me know if you do any improv piecing.
Hope you have a Terrific Tuesday!


  1. usually follow a pattern but my latest was a hybrid.. table runner for a swap had a foundation pieced block with some fussy cuts to start but ended up with a lot of improv in the rest... make me move out of my comfort zone... we will see how successful I was when the receipent responds

  2. I usually don't follow an official pattern, but I always have a plan. I love your blocks though!

    1. Lawana...I can't wait to see pics of the finished table runner! :)

      Thank you, Amanda! I try to always have a plan, but sometimes I just let go an make a block! LOL
