Churn, Churn, Churn

 I finally get to share my project from Kelly Young's (My Quilt Infatuation) second quilting book called Scrappy Improv Quilting.  

When Kelly asked me which project I wanted to make, I had a hard time choosing.  There are so many fun projects in this book!  I received a pre-publication copy and I was so impressed with how lovely this book is.  The instructions are easy to understand and the photography and book layout are wonderful.  

As a scrappy quilter, I was so pleased to see that this book is filled with some fun ways to use up those bits every quilter has.  And if you have never done Improv before, Kelly makes the process super easy to be successful.

Here is the mini I completed.  It is called Churn, Churn, Churn.  The little quilt that Kelly made was done in three shades of pink - but I decided to make mine in three different colors.  
I am so pleased with it!

My plan is to hang it in my sewing room once I get a chance to reorganize all the existing minis in there.  I really love how colorful it turned out.

Kelly (My Quilt Infatuation) has been sharing each mini she made from her book over on her blog.  I highly suggest you go check it out - each of them are so pretty.

Bonnie said...

Yes, that is a wonderful mini. Your colors look great.

I love your color choice! What a fun idea!

Yvonne from Quilting Jetgirl said...

I really like that you used three different colors for your churn dashes. And the binding is great, I really like how the print gives it a feel of being a bit scrappy, too.

Super cute variation of Kelly's design, Cynthia! I might not have thought to make the mini in multiple colors.

I love how that turned out! The different colors in each churn dash really appeal to me, and I love the background fabric. It will be fun to have that one hanging on your mini wall!

OK I now have an ear worm, "To everything, churn, churn, churn, there is a season, churn churn churn... and a time to every purpose under heaven." Your turn! Great job!
