A "no-rules" project

After my post yesterday, I realized I wanted to start a new improv project (like I really need a new project). I love having a no-rules project. I enjoy creating something without much of a plan in place. It's fun to just sew fabric together and see where it takes you.

I've been itching to sew with this color combo--neutrals, browns, navy, and green. I also threw in a couple aqua solids, but I'm not loving those so they might not make the cut.  I started with the Modern Meadows flower print and pulled colors from that piece. Although, I'm not sure that fabric will even make the cut.  It doesn't seem quite right.

I'm not sure that this will really become anything much more than an experiment, but I had a fun hour of no-stress sewing last night and just experimented with colors, fabrics and improv stitching.  I needed that.

  1. I like that little pop of teal and the flower print. I think all of those fabrics work well together.
    I hope you have a great day.:)

  3. I love no stress sewing. And yours looks great!

    I took a few hours this summer and sewed together selvages that I had been collecting. The ultimate in brainless sewing, but what I needed at the time. :)

  7. The freedom of improv is just so... freeing. It's a much more relaxed way to sew. And it looks beautiful!
