simple & scrappy





Some days just call for some good old comfort sewing. And sewing up this scrappy improv quilt was ideal for what I felt like  today, simple & scrappy! No need to worry about perfect points, or things ending up the right size - I didn't have a 'right' size with this! I just kept making up little slabs, adding on one way or another, until it became approximately a throw size quilt top!

I did make a few minor changes along the way, like adding in extra fabric. See that lovely Denyse Schmidt blue with the white daisy floral...


... it fitted in really well with it's little accents of orange!









a shot with the sunlight behind -  almost stained glass effect!





... sometimes simple is best!
All ready now for basting, DIY quilting & binding

Linking up for show & tell with Lorna over here at 'let's bee social'
