I can never get enough of the improv quilting. It is the kind of project that I do when I'm experiencing creative block. I simply love the liberating, no hard rules, no precise measurements to follow along, and the one of a kind result of each piece, that always brings a smile on my face.
There are different kinds of improv piecing, which can be incorporated to many different projects, but what I'm going to show you today is the freeform curves. This method is similar to the modern wall hanging quilt project that I shared a couple of years ago; in that video I used some jelly roll strips, and arbitrary piece each strip without much of a planning.
This time, we're going to stick to a theme which is the seaside or beach landscape. The choice of color shades is rather intentional, compare to the former, yet it is also so much fun.
What you need to make the seaside improv wall hanging quilt
Solid fabric in various shades color to create the sunset and the water effect, about 1/8-1/4 yard each, or yo may also use fat eight.
I ended up using 5 shades of color for the sky (upper section), and 8 shades of color for the water+sand (lower section).
You may use less or more color shades depending on the look that you want to achieve.
Beside solids, batik fabric will also work beautifully for this project.
1/6 yard of border fabric.
1/4 yard of binding fabric
23" x 32" Batting
25" x 34" Backing fabric
