I had a look on Youtube and collected a few clips on different types of improv which you can see HERE

I used some of the ideas from the Mr Domestic clip but didn’t want to make a flower. The fans reminded me more of agate and other minerals so I alternated some of the fans to make strips. I did cross a few to make small blocks. to make the piecing simpler I kept to 3 1/2 and 4 1/2 strips and blocks


I finally ended up with this


The big reveal in my case is I got stuck. Should I trim and bind? Seems too traditional for it. Maybe bag instead? But I like the uneven edge. Has anyone got the answer!!!

On a lighter note in the middle of major renovation (two bathrooms, extension, windows, heating, replastering – every room a mess) the plasterer needed to move the loo and this is where he put it!


In the old boiler cupboard in my sewing room! I was intending to sort it out for fabric storage but maybe….. No

  1. I love your explosion of colour improv, Kay. For the Endeavourers it really needs to be a quilt (because we are an Art Quilt group) but an improv bag would be fun 🙂

    Good luck with the renovations. We have a ceiling being taken down as I type so I share your pain and I hope you don’t need the loo!

      I meant to bag it out so there was no binding but still have batting and then I could keep the uneven shape


      1. Lol! You must have though my comment was mad. I did think it would make an eye catching fashion statement though 😀

      Thank you. It is Moda Grunge, I’ve had a charm pack for a while now and took out the yellow, orange and darker greens. It’s a lovely fabric

    Hi Kay! I haven’t seen a quilt like this before (maybe I live too a sheltered life?) but it is fantastic!
