Improvising....Just Another Word for Making It Up As I Go Along

Making it up as I go along is what I do best...or should I say, enjoy the most. I loose interest if I know exactly what the end result will look like.

 To sum it up, my lazy gene doesn't like to plan and my short attention span doesn't like to stay within the confines, of a plan. 

So Improvising it is...sounds much better than making it up as I go along. 

Here's me making it up as I go along improvising.....never knowing exactly what it's going to look like. 
Block Seven of the Oakshott Project  
 And a few shots of the backs. 


  1. Got my Colourbox today and I so badly want to try some improv, but I'm terrified of ruining this delicious fabric!! Are your blocks all QAYG? I've read through your great tutorials which are hugely inspiring! Guess I just need to rake the plunge!

  2. I still haven't experimented with solids...yet. Every time I see a new post of yours I say "that's what I'm going to try next!". You seem to have played with all sorts of solids, are the Oakshott your favorite? I don't have much of a collection of solids yet and am wondering if there is one that really stands out for you. (I must say my stripe collection grows steadily thanks to your inspirational work)

  3. Another beautiful block, this is going to be a stunning quilt!

  4. this is delightful! You never know what's going to happen when you improvise!

  5. Ok I'm an improviser too then - but I wish I had your skills at it! Your Oakshott project is truly stunning!

  6. i have always felt that we are patchworking twins somehow, for exactly this reason. improv is more expressive and it's exciting to see what might happen!

  7. Whatever you call it, the results are wonderful!
