Oh, improv. So soothing, so meditative. Give me a stack of scraps and I could make crazy blocks all day long. I started these blocks in Katie’s class last July, and I took full advantage of access to her scrap bin.
Back home, I just kept adding more and more of my own scraps, with no particular plan in mind. When I evaluated my WIP list at the end of 2012, I found that I had enough blocks to make a decent wallhanging to complement Seaside Cabin, also from Katie’s class.
Ruthlessly, I chopped up any incomplete blocks and incorporated them into the backing. For the quilting, I had a blast with straight line echo quilting. I’m sure I’ll come back to crazy blocks again sometime, but for now I’ll continue to whittle down my WIP list.
