Improv patchwork

Improv patchwork. I am not a patient person. This took me 3 hrs flat zipping along with the sewing machine at full tilt. I have three large crates with scrap fabric or ‘cabbage’ – one brights, one warm colours, one cold colours – and this was thrown together from the brights box. The rules are these, akin to dry stone walling, that if you pick up a piece you have to use it. It works fine once you get moving at speed. I knocked everything together into 3 wide strips of assembled fragments. The back was a king size flat sheet from a sale, folded over to the front to make a quilted border. The finished article is big enough for a single bed or to roll up small children in on the sofa.
