Block of the Month

Improv Medallion

This year we will be playing with improv piecing, or making “wonky” blocks.  This project uses six traditional blocks, but there are many other blocks that are great for improv piecing.


You can make the quilt as I’ve planned, or make your own project using one or more of the patterns.

If wonky blocks aren’t for you, this project can always be made traditionally or as I’m calling it “square”.  Each month there will be tips if you want to make your block square as well.
