I couldn't very well commit to summer WIP's without finishing this one, right? I am pleased to present my completed Improv Picnic Plaid quilt.
Made of out of sunny orange and snippets of light blue on a coal (or is it charcoal?) background, this one was really fun to make and finish, measuring up at around 60x70 inches.
It's getting colder, but at least there are still some flowers.
To approach making my idea of improv plaid a reality, I used 10-inch blocks of improv strips to make intersecting improv stripes. The "intersections" got their own special hashtag-ish block. For the quilting, I thought it only right that the quilting lines echo the wonky nature of the improv.
To bind, selected a light blue varied stripe from the Innocent Crush line, which I think sets off the darker gray background very nicely. You can't go wrong with a striped binding.
