Welcome all you Sassy quilters! Today is the final stop on the Stash Statement Blog Tour.
I was so excited when Kelly@My Quilt Infatuation asked me to participate! This is Kelly Young’s new book called Stash Statement. It is all about improv… and to be honest improv is not something I have done a lot of, but I have a ton of scraps and was ready to try her technique.
I created a quilt from Kelly’s Bonus Pattern called Take Flight.
I decided to make a mini version of this quilt and reversed the improv areas with the solid wings.
Mine finishes at 26 x 28.
I just loved how bright and colorful the improv turned out. It was very easy and free spirited. Playing with all your old scraps reminds you of the quilts you’ve made…and that makes me smile!
I quilted it with an all over stipple… used a light gray on the background areas and a darker gray on the wings. I really wanted you to focus on the piecing and color more that the quilting.
And…. never forget your label!
This is the original version by Kelly@My Quilt Infatuation.
The original pattern finishes at 55 x 60.
So if you have been dying to give improv a try…this is the book for you. She has an easy approach to making some fun and beautiful quilts!
