I'm always delighted when people send me finished pictures of pieces they had started in class.  In October I taught in New Jersey. Today, Lenny Van Eijk

sent me an Instagram-worthy photo of the finished quilt.  On October 7 I posted a picture of Lenny and me with her piece in progress.  Here is the finished quilt!  The quilting is perfectly suited to the piece, too!  Thanks for sharing it, Lenny.

 A month later I taught the same class in New York and Meg Mooar did something totally different.  She filled the negative space with outlines and called it "Not a Fan..." because she's not a fan of negative space! LOL - I love Meg's sense of humor and look forward to seeing it when it is quilted.

Fun, Meg! Thanks:-).

 It just goes to show you that I teach improv as a jumping-off point and everybody puts her/his individual spin and personality into the piece. 


This is true of all improv quilts, no matter who has made them.  If you work improvisationally (which means not using a pattern) I would love it if you'd send a photo to my email. I'm thinking that an exhibit of your work would be a fun thing to feature on my blog!  Aren't you curious to see what other kindred improv spirits are doing??  I am!
