Description

Sept. 15, 2013 I took this picture of Belinda's starting block for Improvi/Robin, Group 2. It is a Wonky Churn Dash block that came in the mail to me and I noticed she had not posted it yet. I have already changed it, but I won't post another pic until I am finished with our first round. Such a delicate block. Sweet is the word. Oct. 11, 2013 Finished working on the Wonky Churn Dash block for Improvie/Robin, Group 2 just as I received Jane's Cup Cake block in the mail. Jane states she wants to donate the finished project to Charity, which will probably influence me on what I add. Maybe not. My reaction to something being donated to Charity is to keep it more traditional so it will be appealing enough for someone to buy. However...this is supposed to be less traditional and more improvisational. Not sure how this will come out but the Improvi/Robin theme is pulling me that direction...flappers, can can girls, or maybe an alligator. Hmmm...what else is in my closet? Nov. 11, 2013. Just added three sides to Jane's cupcake. I am the second person to add to Jane's original block. Belinda added the "hot-crossed bun" theme. I enjoyed working on this perky cupcake. My goal was to keep it whimsical and stay true to the red/black theme without introducing too many new ideas or colors. I used only fabrics from my stash. Now it is in the mail to Marsha, who will awe us all with her clever addition.

Too funny - what kind of closet do you have LOL

Charwirfs

HawkFan You would love my closet. I got one like yours, full of fabrics of just about everything. I forgot to mention the flamingos and yes, there is a hawk.

HawkFan

I have some fun stuff you haven't seen yet - I've got to make some more of the fussy-cut blocks with some of my new stuff. It's amazing the great fabrics that are out there!

Charwirfs

Charwirfs

Thank you cally68 Whatthebobbin . The Cup Cake and Wonky Churn Dash have three more rounds. It will be fun to see what three more people add.

Charwirfs

Quilterinmotion ...I knew you were next in line and your additions are terrific so I had to add some more options for you to "improve" on.

Quilterinmotion

Charwirfs , you are downright mean! I love what you did on your round. I am going to be really challenged on this one. You have such cool fabrics! I'll do my best.
