Improv Special Delivery

Project Special Delivery

I created this block last night for the “secret mission” group, Project Improv. This is a result of randomly grabbing at fabrics and sewing them together with no real plan. I did excitedly throw in a little of the fabric I dyed last fall (the stripe). This block will join many others to become a really cool quilt for a special mom-to-be.

I’m also really happy to be joining efforts with several other modern quilters to raise money for survivors of the disaster in Japan. Please visit Modern Relief – Japan and stay tuned for more details very, very soon.

Munki Minis

Over the weekend I had a burst of creativity and everything I had been working on was pushed aside. *Months* ago I had made a couple Munki Munki blocks for fun. I had no idea what I was going to do with them, but I just really wanted to cut into that cute Heather Ross fabric. Then they sat in a little box….so sad and lonely. Then suddenly on Saturday, it hit me! Mini, modern, one-of-a-kind baby quilts!

I decided I needed to make a rainbow of them (minus purple – I really just don’t have that much purple in my stash!) I am so very excited with how they turned out.

Each one uses a bit of my Heather Ross fabrics. Some I had from trades, some I purchased from Kerri over at Sew Deerly Loved. Kerri sells bits and pieces of the Munki Munki pajamas – pure genius!

All Detail

Each mini quilt measure 18″ x 21″. The backs coordinate with a fabric used on the front in the block and the binding also matches the backings. I quilted them in modern, “random” (I marked them before quilting) straight lines. I just love how they turned out!

Munki Munki Blocks

Today I decided to begin work on my Munki Munki blocks.  After spending a lot of time collecting fabric, I found it quite hard to cut into it.  Especially fussy cutting.  But I really like the results.  I’m thinking I will make a bunch of different sized blocks over a *long* period of time.  I say that because it took the entire afternoon nap time to make these two.  Nap time when I should have been….folding laundry, cleaning the kitchen, swiffering the floors, cleaning the bathrooms…all that glamourous stuff!  Oh well, the dirty house will still be here tomorrow.  :-P
