We're 90% moved into our new place. The 10% is still packed in boxes but I couldn't help starting these improv blocks. They will be everyday placemats to go with our new kitchen table. I have really enjoyed making them but improv piecing can be tricky. You can't just throw a bunch of scraps together and let it ride...you have to plan and think and re-arrange...I'll admit it can be tiresome!
I went out yesterday after a talk with Summer about sketching and bought a sketch book...just a wire bound one for $3.87 at Wal-Mart. I think one of my 2012 goals will be to sketch my ideas out before jumping into a project blind (like I so often do). A little planning never hurt, right!? I've been inspired to make a quilt based on a pillow I saw on a sitcom last week. I sketched out the basic idea and am taking a break today from the placemats to work on it. What are you working on this week?
