Improv Stripes QAL

Happy September!
That means summer is almost over and fall is just around the corner.  That makes me happy!




Here is my finish today.  It is my #improvstripes I made following Debbie's (A Quilter's Table) quilt along.  It measures just over 50 x 65".  I really like how it turned out!




I restricted myself to bright blues, red and a bit of bright yellow.  Love those primary colors.  I paired those with black, whites and a few bits of gray.




On the back, I used an older striped stash find with a black print added on to make it big enough.




For the quilting, I used a black thread and quilted squares/lines all going in different directions.
Improv geometric quilting!


A big thanks to Debbie for hosting.  It was sure a lot of fun!

Happy Friday!

You really rocked this improv! I think your color boundaries really helped tie the quilt together so it has a definite 'story'. Awesome!

I love how it turned out too! It's modern with its limited colour palette and its interesting setting ... unpredictable I think I'm trying to say!

I love how your Improv Stripes turned out! The bright reds and blues combined with black, white, and yellow are so happy and fun. I really like that you were able to make it such a nice size, too - that makes it useful as well as beautiful!

Great quilt!

Mary at Fleur de Lis Quilts said...

Love this! It's colors work well together and the neutrals provide a little relief from the riot of blues and reds. Who'd have thought that black doesn't take away from the happy vibes? Great finish!

Sandy said...
