I wish I could say these were my blocks, but alas, it isn't so. These belong to Suzanne Shannon, one of my improv quilting students at the University of New Mexico Continuing Education. She was initially dubious about creating a block with an unknown visual conclusion, but kept at it with awe-inspiring results.
Susan Steel incorporated the same type of improv blocks in a completely different, and completely wonderful way. It's great to see how the same process can enable so many creative possibilities.
Marcia had a fun, whimsical collection of fabrics containing everything from caterpillars to vehicles. I love how she pulled them together with red sashing.
She made these monochromatic braid blocks too. Aren't they lovely?
Students, thank you for making my Wednesdays nights so much fun!
