Perusing Instagram, I am constantly inspired by other quilter's work. Several months ago Heather Jones Studio had been creating quilt after beautiful quilt of improv half-log cabins, and I decided that I must try my hand at it too. I pulled out some of my hand-printed peach fabrics and went to town. Whenever I had a break between projects, I would slice more strips and add them to my four funky blocks. Before I knew it, it was time to sandwich and quilt it! All bound up, it hung on my quilt ladder un-photographed for a couple months. Until last weekend. I ironed out that lovely improv beast and took it to my favorite quilt photo spot for some quality time. I may have been yelled off the property by a startled Amtrak employee, but without missing a beat, I headed to campus and discovered a lovey white industrial backdrop across the road from the library.
