I don't really remember when or where this fabric came from. However, I did try to use it for the fractured quilt-a-long but that first quilt failed fast. More recently, I have been reading through The Quilting Edge blog (wonderful!) and thought I would use this fabric as part of an improv quilt. Well, to be honest, I figured I could noodle around with this fabric and be happy to cut into it whether it worked out or not. Not quite the right mindset, but it's a start.
So I started by making a massive hunk of striped fabric, and then cut it into strips to use in a log cabin. The nice thing about a log cabin for an improv is that it gives you an obvious next place to go (the next log around the center), and you only have to make a decision about that next step. Improv for kittens, so to speak.
