Lately several bloggers have posted photos of lovely sampler quilts that they are working on which made me think of making one-only I thought why not make an improv sampler quilt? I'd like to be able to say that it all went together swimmingly, but there were several sections that were ripped out and redone. And the circle around the mariner's compass, well, let's just say it gave me fits! Curved piecing is my nemesis....
Here's hoping that you have time for fabric/fiber today,
Here's my version of a sampler quilt done in an improv style:
The winter here has been rather disappointing with hardly any snow or cold weather. I hate to say this as so many of you are buried under snow, but for us here in Boise, there really haven't been many opportunities to ski on decent snow. Okay, I'll stop whining ;-) On the upside, due to the unseasonably warm weather, our flowers are starting to put on a nice show and it's been lovely weather for riding my bike.
We had a visit from several dark-eyed juncos, which are always neat to see.
