Improvisional Log Cabin Block

So I heard about Project Improv from Tallgrass Prairie Studio, but I couldn't decide whether or not to join. First, I have never made a log cabin block, let alone a improvisional one. So I read through a few tutorials, and starting scouring my scrap bins. And viola! My first improvisional piece. And was it FUN! It felt liberating to just randomly choose patterns and sizes and let it all come together.

There are bits of Amy Butler, Urban Chiks, Anna Griffin and various pieces. I think it came together quite nicely. So the piece measures approx 14" x 14" - too big for the Project Improv - so I think this will become a pillow cushion cover...that can't be too hard, right?

I HIGHLY recommend taking this step and just flow with your mood, the fabric, and what inspires you. So with this great experience in hand, I decided to join Project Improv! I will definately be making more of these! Check out Project Improv's Flickr group. Some beautiful and amazing pieces.

Next attempt: try making it Wonky!
