Facets Quilt Along Week 2 – Improv Piecing

Welcome to week two of Facets Quilt Along. Last week we gathered fabrics and started cutting. This week we will make our own crazy-pieced fabric. The fun thing about this is that even if you are using the same fabric as me (Kona Solids Christa Watson Palette), your quilt will still look different from mine!

Follow the instructions page 93 of Machine Quilting With Style to make your fabric pieces. Then share your progress and ask questions in my facebook group Quilt With Christa.

Here are a couple more fun examples:

A sample piece I made using a bunch of scrappy prints. It looks great in any fabrics!

This beautiful piece was made by G from my facebook group. She’s sewing along with her sisters!

Jocelyn from the facebook group chose a more muted, modern palette. I love it!

Paula’s festive blue and green combo is so fun – perfect for a Seahawk’s fan!

Seeing everyone’s pictures is half the fun of a quilt along. It’s amazing how the different fabric combinations are coming together to create individual works of art. Be sure to pop over to my facebook group to see more amazing improv in process!

Jan is using lots of leftover scrappy bits – no size is too small!

If you are sharing your progress via social media be sure to hashtag it #facetsqal. Remember, everyone who participates will be entered to win prizes. I just love seeing your progress!

    how funny! I promised myself I would work on a scrappy quilt just to get some of the fabric cleared out of the house! I will post mine when done! I love how great minds think alike!
