Flushed with the success of my 'improv' pieced cushion which I wrote about recently, I thought I would try a slightly bigger project using more of the techniques from the book 'Artful Improv' by Cindy Grisdela. At the beginning of the week, I pieced together a wall quilt using three different techniques from the book.
I am really pleased with the results but, I haven't decided how to quilt it yet, so it is still a work in progress.
While I was making up my mind how to quilt the improv quilt, I decided to start another project. This was a free pattern from many years ago (2009) called 'Honey Bunny' by Kellie Wulfsohn of Don't Look Now! (Kellie now has a shop called Cutting Cloth.) It has been sitting in a folder all that time waiting for me to make it!!
The pattern uses a technique for raw-edge appliqué which I haven't used very much as I was never very confident to try it. However, since learning to free motion quilt, I now feel I have the skills needed and, I thought I would make it. The original pattern was made into a small cushion but, as I have made a couple of new cushions recently, I decided to make it into a mini wall-hanging instead.
It was a lot of fun to make and I really loved quilting the back ground with this all-over swirly pattern. In fact, I liked it so much that I may quilt my improv quilt with it too!! The bunny wall-hanging is perfect for Easter or, I may send it to my Granddaughter to hang in her nursery!
