W.I.P Wednesday - Improv blocks

I made good progress with my Shattered quilt from Jacquie Gering and Katie Pederson's book: Quilting Modern. I have been in love with this quilt pattern ever since I bought this book last year. My version is very colorful though.

This is going to be a shop sample for Liz @ Bits N Pieces quilt shop, in Pelham, NH using Andover fabrics textured solids(linens) and Simply Style Chevrons by V &Co.
I using Jacquie & Katie's "Slice and Insert" technique. It also helped to watch Jacquie's Craftsy class "Improvisational Piecing, Modern Design". She shows us in detail how to match those points after slicing and while inserting new strip.

Sorry about the poor quality of pictures, I took them using my Samsung Note in a hurry and looks like they didn't focus well.

Just one more block to go. These linens are so wonderful to work with. I can hardly wait to finish the quilt top and get to the quilting part.

Now linking up to W.I.P Wednesday @ Freshly Pieced.

    1. Thank you, MC! That was really the fun part, matching up those points as continuous line. Yes, definitely checked Jacquie's class. She also has other fun Improv techniques.
