Lately I've been low-key obsessed with improv quilting. In the simplest of explanations, improv quilting is piecing together a quilt top without a pattern. After that, it gets more complicated with lots of conflicting opinions.
Some people say it's quilting without a plan.
Other people are okay with a plan, but insist on no ruler.
Other people say, use a ruler, but you have to choose your fabric 100% randomly.
Like any art form, there are rules and rule breakers. But I don't think the quilt police are coming for any of us. To me, improv quilting is like painting with fabric.
Today, I thought I'd share some images I've been collecting on Pinterest. I can't guarantee that they are all improv quilts, but they look improv-inspired to my eye and in turn, they inspire me towards improvisational work. I hope you'll find them inspiring too!
I love the non-perfection in these quilts. I love the freedom and the sense of organized chaos. I love the non-straight lines. There's just so much to love about these amazing quilts!
Thanks for stopping by!
