I would love for you to join me (a retired senior)in my zany crafting adventures with quilting (waaaaay too much fabric); scrapbooking (will I ever catch up?); redwork; counted cross stitch; crossword puzzles; reading; and cooking.

Orange slabbing in progress on "It Was a Dark and Stormy Night..."

Here are the blocks I've made so far...( 23 more to go--this is going to be a bigger
quilt than I had thought--just because I am having SO MUCH FUN ;}}})

the top one is a new cutting
from that original fabric....

and More work on freaked out kitties....

HERE, I have set up the other blocks in progress by my machine...
                               I found this old batik scrap that I love--so in it will go

Here's a closer look at my scraps....all shades of orange and peach thrown in, too....and that little bit of light mauvey-pink...;*}}} who could have known that these Ghastlie Fabrics would morph into
another Improv quilt...

I am calling this my 4th Improv quilt adventure (of a sort)--because:

although I am setting the centers log cabin style---I have no idea how I will fill in  
in between all these different sized blocks...and they are by no means up to any final size as yet; there are more rounds to go...

I am doing the first round on each one and then will continue around in some fashion...(improving)
I want to add some kind of black/gray/silver: 

maybe more coin strips, maybe some skinny strips...this will also be
some  Improv ...

Thanks to DAWN & JACKIE for suggesting this slabfest...it was the springboard for this piece and a whole lot of fun...
