Hello, and welcome to my stop on the blog hop for Kelly Young's new book, Scrappy Improv Quilting! Most of you know Kelly from her blog My Quilt Infatuation. I was honored to be included in helping with the release! You will find 22 mini quilts packed into this beautiful book. Here's what I came up with!
If you look close you will see many different fabrics and some are very small pieces. It's fun remembering back to what you originally had made with each print!
Here's a picture taken inside, I think you can see the improv pieces a bit better.
Improv always intimidated me until I participated in Kelly's first book release, Stash Statement. I truly enjoyed the process of grab, sew, trim and repeat. It doesn't require a lot of thought and I found it quite relaxing!
My mind is programmed to function best with a set plan in front of me. Kelly's books give you that "structured" plan. She walks you through from start to finish. Although you create the improv pieces to use, there is still a pattern! There are tips included with every project in the book, I really love that!
Here's a close up of some of the blues in my star block. I apologize for the dark pictures. I'm not sure why they are reading this way.
I was super impressed with the book quality when I received my copy. It is so VIBRANT and is such awesome quality! There are so many fun projects, my favorite is the cover quilt. Rainbow improv is so, so beautiful!!
