Improv Stripes Update

Pretty, isn't it?

feathers and heart quilting motif

I snapped this picture of one of my most pretty quilt motif drawings, just before I erased it off the vinyl forever. I had high hopes that feathers and/or hearts in the sides of the quilt top would look nice. Everything I drew was pretty, but nothing played well with the quilt top - bummer. 

But at least I captured it before I erased it, as it's one that I'd love to use somewhere, someday. Maybe you have a quilt that it would look lovely on - feel free to use it, and send me a picture!

I'll admit, there was a lot of procrastination regarding the improv stripe/heart blocks. I want to thank everyone for their suggestions and support as to layout ideas. And I am so happy to report that I now have a fantastic quilt top - notice I didn't tell you what kind of quilt top. But alas, it's not finished yet, so giving you a sneak peek.

improv patchwork stripes and hearts

The quilting is almost done, as I got a late start yesterday. Spent the morning with contractors regarding installing air conditioning ahead of the coming summer. It would be wonderful to have, but boy, is it expensive!

Hard to think about AC when it's February, and equally hard to dive into a new Book of the Month with so much left unfinished. So I've decided to continue with Improv Patchwork, (affiliate link) working on those very curvy stripes, and possibly another heart idea. Hopefully, I'll have the next one figured out a bit better!

Happy Quilting!

Thank you so much for just made my day!
