Improv Piecing and Quilting for the Off Season Project Quilting Challenge

Spontaneous or Improv Piecing is a way of creating by piecing strips and pieces together in a random method to form a quilt block and/or a quilt. I made a table runner.


I started with a colorful center and rounded it with various strips and pieces of cream fabrics to form rectangular blocks. 






Then I randomly put it together lengthwise to make a table runner.



It is ready to quilt.

It's almost quilted.


After the quilting was complete I stitched the binding.


Several years ago, I created my Textures Quilt Pattern. It is an organized way to create an artsy quilt. It is available on Craftsy.com in My Craftsy Store.

I used the same construction method to create my Spontaneous or Improv Quilted Table Runner.
