Improv Stripes Quilt-Along!


It's been a year since the Crosscut Quilt-Along, and high time to host another. Oh and yeah, I've been getting some prodding about that, so why not? So.... the Improv Stripes Quilt-Along will start on Instagram Monday, July 31!


This time around there won't be daily prompts, as you'll need just a little more time to make your blocks. But it'll be quick, and definitely feel free to participate as much or as little as your schedule allows. Want to try the block technique and just make a mug rug? Great! Find yourself getting carried away and can't stop making blocks and decide you want to make something larger? Awesome. I'll probably be somewhere not-too-small-but-not-too-big, so just decide what works for you as we go along.



Though I first tried improv stripes in my Greenery quilt, I totally fell for them while making Thinly Sliced.



So are you up for some easy improv? Try a new technique and make a quilt of your own design - whatever size fits into your life right now. Sewing in community is such fun, I hope you can join us!

We'll be using Instagram hashtags #improvstripesqal and #improvstripes so you can follow along!

  11. Hi, can you figure out how to make your invitation to subscribe to the newsletter go away? It remains open, covers content, and won't close. Thanks.

  13. I'm sorely tempted; I love improv, it's just that I currently have 4 projects on my sewing table. Maybe something small... Kate
