Last week I finished two Project Linus quilts.
Ann and Kaya – I came across your blog from Amanda Jean at Crazy Mom Quilts tonight. I posted a comment about my improv blocks. When I read your post, Ann, I realized that I have been doing improv quilting all along. Here is one I’d like to share.
I had bought this really cute dog fabric all kinds together on green backing. But the piece was not long enough. So I decided,to make a row quilt. I found the assorted brown strips that looked like paths or fences. To add more length I broke them up with ball/balloon strips, making the length right. I still had no name for it. Then I found this whole Jellyroll of cars running along. This became the streets where the owners parked to get out and let the dogs play. Voila! A dog park.

This is the last week of orange and I’m looking forward to next month. But I have another orange option for my row quilt.
I really like the orange bordered by the little pinwheels. I only have about six pinwheel strips so I will have to be careful where I use them. That is one of the reasons I have been going slowly with these rows, so I won’t end up having to do any ripping and replacing. The floor is only temporary, but I do make good use of the iPad by taking photos of all my ideas to look back at.
