Improvised Quilt Project 

Since I am impatient and I needed some instant gratifcation I started this scrappy improv quilt using the strips from my Moda Scrap Bag.

Not surprisingly the improve scrap fabric quilt has come together much quicker and pipped my learner’s quilt.

Quilt Top

I decided to try to make a baby size quilt and I wanted the front to be what I think might be called a half log cabin – but one big large one.

The Backing – After Quilt Style

Essentially you use some of the left over scraps from the front to make the backing.

So I cut up (another!) old cot sheet. I then made some scrappy improv blocks using the white cot sheet material as the main fabric and adding in bits of the strips.

In the end I probably like the back of the quilt better than the front! Maybe because it actually took me longer to do or maybe because it has so much white space.

In any case the back also gave me a chance to try sashing around the blocks to make them fit.
