Modern Scrap Quilt – Improv Style!

This modern improv scrap quilt was a super quick make. The quilt top took me just two and half evenings to finish.

Materials Used:

– Ruby Star Scrap Bag – Fabric Remnants – Fabric Strips – Accent Color Scraps – Backing Fabric – Quilt Batting

‘Designing’ my Quilt Top

I started by laying out some low volume large remnants on the floor. To make out the basic background of the quilt.

On top of the low-volume fabric I just randomly placed some of the Ruby star scraps from my scrap bag.

Piecing the Improv ‘Blocks’

I started piecing my quilt ‘blocks’, by taking some low volume strips  and I started chain piecing them with the Ruby star scraps as well as the flying geese blocks.

Then you will have these units or blocks and it becomes a kind of jigsaw puzzle operation of trying to fit them together.

Joining Sections to Make Your Quilt Top

The aim at this point is to build and build into larger sections that can be joined to eventually make the quilt top.

To do this you will start by combining some of the smaller units you have made to each other and then trimming off one side or another to make a straight edge that will allow you to join it to another group of units.
