I have been making slow and stead progress on the improv squares that I need to piece the Murrina quilt from Stash Statement. I just crested over the halfway point; I have 16 blocks complete and 10 more to piece.
I am taking a different approach to the improv panels than is presented in the book because I really wanted specific color groupings and block sizes in specific colors. The method in the book is a perfect gentle introduction into scrap / improv piecing. Looking at what I am piecing, it is clear that I am drawn to fairly angular styles.
I am loving the color combination and I can’t wait to get these done and see how they interact with the bright Kona Cotton Breakers background that I selected.
Up next on the cutting mat are the yellows, which coordinate nicely with the grid on my Olfa mat and 60mm Olfa rotary cutter. Have you seen the announcement that Olfa now has endurance blades for the 60mm? I love my 60mm rotary cutter and can’t wait to give an endurance blade a try!
In other news, I had planned to be gone yesterday for a quilt photoshoot but the weather just didn’t cooperate. Fingers crossed the winds are lower and I can pull it off, with the help of a good friend, next week!
