Late last year I started to think how I could challenge myself in my creativity, and really open myself up to more creativity in the coming year. I decided to challenge myself with improv quilting. I love developing patterns and chain piecing the latest idea, but I know there’s so much more to explore in the realm of improv piecing!
Starting today I’m diving in with 100 days – I’m committed to posting on Instagram a new improv composition daily. I won’t be sewing these up on the weekend and scheduling them, I will sew each day in order post. I do plan to share a round up each week here, with the units made the week before. Look for those on Mondays for the next few months.
As I was trying to give my challenge some parameters, I thought at first I might sew to a specific size, but that felt too limiting. So, I decided to start with black and white solids and add to them from my scrap bin as I’m inspired. I’m really looking forward to exploring and seeing where this takes me!
Last year I explored acrylic paints, and have loved the alternate medium! Here’s a look at a few of my favorite paintings so far.
