Going With The Flow

Improv Log Cabin

Remember this free-pieced project? And how I was trying to finish it or something? I decided I had "enough" units, I trimmed them to size, and then I started trying to come up with some kind of layout for them. Still working on that.

In the meantime I looked at the remaining scraps that I had set aside for that project and noticed that I had a lot of long strips of various widths left. A few seams later:

Improv Log Cabin In Progress
(This is actually before I sewed the blocks together, but it looks the same.)

I guess the best way to describe this block is improv log cabin. I tried to follow somewhat of a log cabin pattern, but obviously there's no real plan for the colors and the strips are all different widths. It's a little busy, but I really didn't want to sash the blocks. I think it works, though!

These colors compliment each other and the effect is very serene. Great job.

OOOh.. I like it. Your "free pieced" is far more organized than mine is.
I love the colors. You are a bright happy quilter too!
Thanks for sharing the joy.
