The Future of 'Pink/Orange'

'Project Improv' is well on its way. Anina had a little bit of time and put some of the blocks that have been posted in the flickr group into a little "potential quilt" mosaic. It's like seeing into the future. This, is a work of art!

Check out the flickr group to see the folks who made these great blocks and check out all the rest. Isn't it GREAT what we can do together. The quilts we make to donate are going to be spectacular. There are more wonderful blocks to see and some folks have even started their improvisational projects.
Don't forget to check out the discussion section of the group. It's a great place to get questions answered or share information.

You guys are awesome!

What a great idea to put those together photographically! It will indeed be an awesome quilt.

Jackie said...

That looks terrific! My blocks are ready to be uploaded and hopefully on their way to you later this week! I really had fun making them. Thanks for setting this up!

Gail :) said...

It looks awesome put together :) I can't wait. I am still working on cleaning my sewing area. Ughh. I may just push the stuff aside yet again and get sewing ;)

I'm "practicing" before I do my blocks. This is so hard for me, but it is really a lot of fun too. These look so good together!

I love this so much, and is a great source of inspiration for me since I am doing pink and orange too. I've started cutting tonight!

Shannon said...

I'm going to try to work on mine this weekend. I can't wait to see mine with everyone else's. As far as my Project Improv, I have my fabric but I haven't decided on the actual project. Thanks again Jacquie!

WOW, you ladies are fast. I'm not even close, but I'm absorbing mass amounts of inspiration.

Lurline said...

Oh, I am not up to date on what this is all about, but it looks fabulous! I must get back soon to full absorb it!

nicolette said...

Wow, that looks dazzling!

I’m working on my blocks! Love it! Now fingers crossed for some sunshine to take pictures and they will be send to you at the end of the week.

Rose said...

wow that is one crazy quilt! I might have to try doing a wonky one myself, usually everything has to be measured exact and according to pattern, I'll have to step out of my box a little!

Sharon said...

Love that "virtual quilt"! What a great idea, to put all the blocks together photographically. What fun!

Sorry I won't be joining you in Project Improv (too many other commitments), but I am watching with relish AND absorbing. It looks like such fun!

And thanks for the link to the Flicker group. I can't wait to go see what everyone is up to.

What a fantastic combination of colours! These quilts will certainly cheer someone up! Love the pink and orange combo...

Stephanie said...

You are awesome Jacquie! The block collage looks great!

Jackie Russell said...

Thanks Anina for putting together the mosaic for us. The quilts are going t look great! Thanks again Jacquie for putting this together for us.

Regi said...

Oh... they are all so wonderful! I need to get my act together and finish mine. Awesome job everyone!!

Rebekah said...

those blocks look so cute together. It's amazing how you can pull 12 blocks together simply with unifying colors!

Dana said...

I love that you are giving these quilts to charity once complete. Another idea would be to auction them off and then give the money to charity. After seeing these lovely pink and orange blocks I might pay big bucks for a chance to own one.

Especially people who don't quilt but follow your blog!

Just an idea!

Katherine said...

Very inspiring! I'm loving this. Looking forward to seeing more beautiful blocks as they are uploaded. I think this is the perfect way to beat winter blues - bring on the pink/orange!!!!

amandajean said...

i love the mosaic!!!

em's scrapbag said...

These are going to be sooo great. Thanks for putting it together.

henny said...

oh..so beautiful! It's a great idea to put them all together. Btw, i still can't join flickr, they said I might write a permission letter for the administrator (I did it) and now just wait. i'm still working on my B&W project and planning to start sewing my curvy block this Saturday. Wish me luck :)

ellen said...

Jacquie, these are just so brilliantly beautiful. What a wonder all of you are creating.
The creativity "out there" is astounding to me.
Do you quilt in your dreams, or is sleep so elusive as you lie there joyously with colors and patterns swirling around in your head?

Victoria said...

Saw this on Flickr. Brilliant idea!

Diane said...

Such warm and joyful energy. Kind and caring hearts, and it is reflected in your work and your collaboration on the charitable quilts. Great job everyone!

Anina said...

Those look so good on the black background!

Kerri said...

wow!! it is going to be beautiful!!

ivyarts said...

Amazing. Such a symphony of color and creativity. I'm so excited about this project.

susan said...

Lee-Anne Gilbert said...

They all just look fantastic Jacquie... I love the colours... love pink and orange together... Gosh, being away for 3 weeks really puts a hole in my sewing time... I'm jealous!! Lx

sewtakeahike said...

the quilts ARE going to be works of art for sure Jacquie, thanks for posting the mosaic! So far my project and quilt block have been in the thinking stage, maybe I'll actually put in some sewing time this week though!
