In July I decided I wanted to make a new quilt. It feels like I haven't done anything very creative in a long time and I am ready! I designed the quilt I wanted to make and just kept avoiding getting started because it didn't feel right. Then, I decided I'd just do an improv quilt and see what happens. I remember that two years ago I purchased "The Improv Handbook for Modern Quilters: A Guide to Creating, Quilting & Living Courageously" by Sherri Lynn Wood.
I started flipping through the book but I WAS NOT going to follow the directions...no way! I just wanted ideas to get me started. Buuuutttt...then....I decided to actually start to read the book and thought, "why not give it a try?" Maybe a little structure would help my creativity!
So, I'm starting with Score #1 Floating Squares. I started with red and a denim linen and my daughter asked me if it was going to be all red or in rainbow colors. Rainbow colors, of course! (Though, I do want to do a monochromatic quilt soon, too.)
I got started today and time flew! In fact....I gotta run or I'll be late to church tonight!
