Isn't this a pretty block? It was made by Gabriella from Seattle. Gabriella just got her first sewing machine and decided to use it to make a block for Project Improv. The best thing about this is that Gabriella is just 11 years old. Isn't that the greatest? This is one talented young lady. Don't you just love when the younger generation gets involved in the art of quilting? I'm excited to put her block into one of the quilts. Gabriella, you're on the sidebar and an official participant of Project Improv. You go girl!
A couple more Project Improv quilts for your viewing pleasure. This is red/aqua #2.
I made the quilt from fabric donated by an anonymous donor. Thanks, whoever you are. It turned out to be its own quilt because when I trimmed all the blocks I absentmindedly trimmed them all to 12 inches instead of 12.5. So, I added the dark brown sashing and borders and made it a top all its own.
This is blue/green #3 with blocks from these quilters.

There are 8 more quilts in the construction process. Stay tuned for more reveals each day this week. I also got an email from Jackie this morning that the first quilted tops should be on their way soon. Aren't you just itching to see them? I know I am.

I need everyone to check the sidebar of my blog. If your name has a star by it, your blocks have arrived. no star = no block as of yet. Please check me for accuracy. I want to make sure I'm keeping track. I have a block from a Jennifer, but I don't know which one you are. Help me out, please. If your name is missing, let me know that too.
The April 1st deadline to send your block is fast approaching. I know we have families, jobs, laundry, pets, and all sorts of other commitments, so if you're going to be late, don't fret, just let me know. It will help me plan for the quilts to come. It's going to take time to get all the blocks into quilts so time is on your side. It sure would be nice to see stars by all those names on the sidebar. I know we can do it!
Have a great week everyone! I'm going to get by to visit blogs this week...I really am....
