The Improv Fun Continues in July …

Ordinarily, I probably wouldn’t force two curved improv blocks upon you in two consecutive months, but this month’s block is such a good match for the Rainbow Scraps Challenge colors and one does build upon the skills learned/practiced on the other, so I hope it won’t be too much of a hardship.   I promise … August will mark a return to more traditional techniques. In July, we will combine improv curves with bias to make this Spiky Leaves block. I made this one. You may make a maximum of 9 blocks  for chances in the...

June Winners!

The winners of the improv bullseye blocks are: Julie P – 56 blocks Maree – 56 blocks Kristin – 50 blocks Mariella – 50 blocks Julie actually won TWICE in the first list of random numbers … so another winner was chosen. I will be checking in with the winners later today to confirm their addresses and find out how many of their own blocks they choose to keep. I can’t wait to see what you all do with these cool blocks!...

5 for Kathy S.

The blocks I posted yesterday did not fit the criteria for the block layout.  I didn’t read the directions that said the middle and other ring had to be the same fabric.  Doof!  I deleted that post and made new blocks.  Here are my five bullseye blocks for June.  I didn’t get as much curve in that little piece that I wanted....

Much Later than “Later Today” …

Next month we’ll be making another improv block … and putting together the directions for it took me longer than expected.  (Even though I should know better by now … really). If you have made and posted bullseye blocks this month, you should have email from me with the sneak peek. If you didn’t receive it–or maybe even received it when you shouldn’t have–please let me know ASAP.  If you have any questions about anything, don’t hesitate to email me about them. In the meantime, mum’s the word until...

Bullseye Blocks

Nine blocks from me for the drawing.  Despite being in my favorite colorway, these were difficult… because I realized I had very little of the colors left in my stash!  Clearly I must remedy this color gap the next time I go fabric shopping....
