a big improv finish

it started w a few favorite fabrics...i found the vintage corduroy and orange floral yardage at value village

i found improv handbook for modern quilters so helpful and inspiring ~ i also follow @sherrilynnwood and love her #makedochallenge





row by row i made this queensize quilt for sam and lani... following along w @seattlemqg seaslabbom and i was completely influenced by satterwhitequilts to make the spine block

 
over the space of a year i improvised and and loved all the support , encouragement and inspiration i found through books and social media


when i finished piecing  i was a bit disappointed with how wrinkled and wonky it looked


a view from behind

but i  pieced the back w a linen plus leftovers from the quilt top
and i machine quilted it with the pattern modern textures

i stamped it with value vintage because the most important fabrics in this quilt were found there at different times but were meant for each other

i am very happy with this finish... and it really did QUILT OUT  nicely

I LOVE IMPROV and i love that it is completely ready for it's new home xoxo
