- Ants to Sugar's Little Tents
- Improv Stripped Geese by Little Ms. Sew-Unsew
- My experiment continued with half-square triangles, half-rectangle triangles, and tall and skinny. I especially like the scrappy ones in the upper left, using my string scraps from last month.
Three. Gentle curves
- Free-piece fabric making from Victoria Findlay Wolfe
- In Matt's words, "I cut a variety of squares from my fabrics, joined the squares into pairs, joined those pairs of squares into four patch units, and then assembled those four patch units into the slab."
- My process ended up being similar to how Amanda Jean/crazy mom quilts begins her Scrap Vortex quilt.
- Jacquie Gering's tutorial, which includs a 'half log cabin' variation, shown in the right half of my slab, as well as the full block, on the left.
Seven. Quarter circles
- Improv curved quilt blocks from Lindsay Conner on Craftsy
- I also have often refered to Leanne/she can quilt's tutorial for Improv Circles.
Eight. Churn dash
- This month we got to choose our own block, and I very roughly referenced Leanne/she can quilt's "liberated piecing" technique to create my Churn Dash blocks.
- Also see the Modnerized Churn Dash tutorial by Jenifer/42 Quilts.
- Another 'choose your own' month, I really winged it on this one, and then wrote my own Improv Hourglass tutorial.
So there's a handy little round-up of improv quilt block tutorials to get you experimenting on your own. Have fun!
