I am so excited that I have finally made progress toward finishing up my last WiP that I brought home from SewDown Portland: my Modern Improv Round Robin which was a class led by Sherri Lynn Wood. Here is what I cam home with:
I started out by completing the second column of improv blocks.
Once they were done I had to decide what to do next. It didn’t take long for me to quickly settle on a bit of dark sashing instead of continuing to create these blocks. I am pleased with the way they frame the blocks but I also like the fact that it isn’t completely set by borders.
I know that I also want an eye popper for my binding, so I selected the keystone fabric that I used during the class for the border, which is the yellow fabric with light grey and white swirls that is in the middle of the right hand column. Given that I was using yellow for the border, I selected a few fabrics for the backing and put one together rather quickly using left over materials. Again, I think the pop of yellow for the border will look nice.
I am excited by the progress and just need to find some batting and a bit of time to get this WiP completed!
