15 improv mini.

10.19.2011

I'm in the process of making a mini quilt out of my improv block from Sewing Summit.  I was going to use my go-to natural linen for the background, but it didn't look quite right.  I auditioned about ten other fabrics before ultimately deciding that this thrifted purple stripe was perfect for the job.
This block is a little loud for me, but I'm going to embrace it rather than trying to calm it down.  I'm thinking it will be just the pop of color I need against the gray walls in my sewing room!

  1. I actually love this. I think the white border calms down the loud and makes this look awesome.

  6. I do like the idea that you auditioned the fabrics to see which one was right - auditioning fabrics is a cool way to think about fabric choices...thanks for the inspiration!

  10. I love the cheerful colours, too and the stripy background really is a perfect match! Also, the purple goes with your blog template! ;-) :-)
