AHIQ - share your improv

My attention is being drawn in lots of competing directions again - I'm not sure how I keep ending up with so many (for me) different projects on the go at once.  In some ways it keeps things interesting but it also makes me feel sometimes that I am not making progress on anything.  This week it has been my piece with the little squares that has been short of attention.  I have sewn on the grey borders but haven't decided what, if anything, happens next. Maybe it stops here.  It could be my first mini (but I'd have to assign it a use - maybe giant hankie?) or my first UFO,  but I have a kind of notion to keep going and see where it leads.

  1. This is a fun quilt. I like the unexpectedness of the orange in the top right corner. Wish I had time to participate right now. Lots of inspiration here.

  2. It's very pretty. Maybe you could hang it on a wall.

  3. A giant hankie, LOL? No, No, No... I know you love functionality in all your creations Kaja, so you'll think of something. It's a fun looking piece! Is it a good size for a bag?

  4. I love this bright beauty! Your improv pieces are always an inspiration, Kaja.

    I meant to participate in this linky by moving along my one improv piece, but I didn't do anything new on it this month. My intention was to do the ditch quilting on it, but when I went to do that a few days ago, I discovered it was already done--and I didn't remember that I'd done it, probably a couple months ago. LOL! Thinking about posting a "state of the improv" kind of thing, but didn't know if you just wanted recent stuff or not. Anyway, I'm at least following along, and thanks for the opportunity to do so!

  5. Oh, yes. The orange slice is perfect. I'm with you on functionality. Do you need a pillow?

  6. I have the same response to some of my improv creations. Now what to do with it? So it was with this improv I did while at the Amy Butler retreat, but vowed not to let it languish. I kept building around it until it turned into this large piece. I think it will work best as a very large wall hanging, but could even be a lap quilt. Either way, I do like to turn the into something useful. My two cents: keep going!

    Thank you so much for hostessing the link party, and the best of luck for continuing success.

  9. Funny you said you would have to assign it a use. That's what I just said in my post...play, for me, has to have a use. I see a set of napkins. I like to use cloth napkins. They are dirt cheap at the thrift stores but homemade ones are even better.

  10. Lovely pop of orange in there!
    Lovely to see all the links here - I have my morning cuppa so I'll head off and visit everyone!

  11. I love this piece as it is Kaja! It's hard to stop sometimes, but it would make a fabulous mini quilt/wall hanging - a gift perhaps?! (Christmas is coming, haha!!!) Thank you so much for the link up. I've really enjoyed discovering new to me blogs, there are some great things going on out there!

Feel free to comment away! I read everything and welcome all feedback. I seem to be getting a lot of comments from no-reply bloggers at the moment - if you don't get a response, that will be why.
