improv slab quilt


I was recently commissioned to make a quilt for a family member, with the only parameters being that it needed to fit on a twin bed and should feature light blue fabrics.


Using the slab technique from Sunday Morning Quilts, I constructed blocks from light blue and aqua fabrics, including vintage prints and men's dress shirts. To keep the quilt from becoming too busy, I alternated the improv blocks with solid white to create a simple layout.



I sent the top off to Lindsay, of Eileen Quilts, for quilting. I selected a hydrangea quilting pattern, which I thought nicely complemented the light-blue color scheme and the vintage floral sheet I used for the backing. Lindsay did a beautiful job, and I've already sent another quilt to her to be quilted.
