QAYG Meets up with Improvised Blocks

In this next quilt I am still using the narrow, joining strips, as in Crazy Shortcut Quilts, but the blocks are liberated or improvised.....which ever term you prefer.

Playing with Stripes 2008
By using oversized blocks and random or improvised joining strips, the overall design of the quilt is no longer dominated, by the joining strips. 

I used a mix of wovens and flannels.  There are those spirals again, many are off center to add to the wonkiness.

No matter how you fold the quilt, you get a different look. It's like each block is a mini art quilt on it's own.


  1. thanks for these posts about the qayg process! you've made some amazing quilts with this technique and it inspires me to give it a try.

  2. I see what you mean about the, random or improvised joining strips. I like it that way too. This quilt is so pretty!
    Have a good Sunday :)
