Last month in my circle in do. Good Stitches I got to make some improv chevron blocks using the tutorial over at Six White Horses. We were requested to use white, light grey, yellow, green and blue/aqua, all in light, soft shades. It was a little harder than I expected finding these colors in my scrap bins since I tend to lean toward bright colors, but with a few cuts from my yardage stash, I had plenty of prints to pull from.
I’m a little sad at how straight the pieces ended up being. I guess that’s part of improv sewing. And when you think about it, if it truly is random, you’re just as likely to end up with some straighter lines as you are super crooked lines, so I can’t be too disappointed. I think this quilt is going to end up pretty cool!
