Improvised Quilting!

I have never really felt comfortable with improvised 

piecing...


So I thought I'd try my hand at improvised quilting!


Sort of a straight meander....



I just began sewing, left, down, back, right, across....


wherever my machine took me!





At least I can say this mini is finished!


Constructive criticism eagerly anticipated!

Happy sewing!

  4. Looks fantastically modern Suz!!! I love how you just followed your instinct with this rather than sitting and working it all out to be 'accurate' or 'even'!! Hugs!

  5. Well done... I'm not sure I would dare to take on improv quilting. In fact all kinds of quilting freak me out. Maybe I ought to give this a try just to be more daring.

  6. It looks brilliant and I think that it is the right type of quilting for that mini. It accentuates all those angles. Well done.

  9. I can't even quilt properly, let alone improvised quilting! Have you got any tips for new quilters? my fabrics pucker and they end up being quilted folded over!

  10. It looks great! I love blue and grey together.
    The backing is a very different choice from some I've seen. Good to see more floral fabrics being used =D

  11. It looks very modern. It's good when you start something that you have never tried before and you end up with a finish. Was your mojo hiding under that quilt?
