Improv for a Good Cause

I've never done any improv piecing. I know, I know, but remember, I took a ten year break from quilting. Then I jumped back in with patterns. The Austin Modern Quilt Guild's American Cancer Society Relay for Life donation quilt is the perfect opportunity for me to give improv piecing a try.


The blocks had to be 12.5" wide but could be any length, so I had some room to play. It was fun! The seam ripper did make an appearance as I tried to figure out what I was doing and use my fabric efficiently, but it still went together fairly quickly.

Have you tried anything new lately? How did it go? I'd love to know!

I'm linking up with Somewhat Simple and Between U & Me.
