My turn for...Blog Hop for Scrappy Improv Quilting


Today is the day........My turn on the Scrappy Improv Quilting blog hop for Kelly Young @My Quilt Infatuation. My quilt is the "Improv Chapel Window" quilt. Very stained glass like improv scraps. Kelly used solids in the book for this quilt and I decided to use whatever was in my scrap bin. I made a sunrise rainbow-like style going from light to dark fabrics. I think it has a sunlight feel!

 Measures 22" x 22"  

Kelly's book is filled with improv mini quilts with easy to follow instructions. Kelly is a hero of mine when it comes to using up scraps after making beautiful quilts and this book really puts those scraps to good use! If you follow Kelly's blog you will often come across a post where she uses up ALL her remaining scraps from a quilt. I dream of being able to do that some day. 

Check out all the blog hop schedule so far:

 I used the diamond window as inspiration for my quilting for this mini. I think it worked well. 



I had quite a bit of fun out taking photos of this little cutie. 


I had this crazy piece of fabric perfect for a backing to my stained glass window. 

Kelly gives you help on finishing and binding the mini quilts as well as help with displaying. Her directions are easy and I love the beautiful photos of each of the 22 Mini quilts in this book. You can purchase the book HERE

Your Chapel Window mini is absolutely gorgeous, Kris! I love the colors of scraps you used. It really does look like light filtering through a window, and your photo shoot is just perfect. Thank you SO much for participating in the Scrappy Improv Quilting blog hop.

Chapel Window looks great! It really stands out on that white door - I almost thought it was stained glass!

Wow , I really need to see that beauty and it really kicked up my sew jo!
Thank you so much for sharing! I will be inspired for the week!
Beautiful! I wouldn't have thought that the prints would work, but they look great in this design and still convey the idea of stained glass. Well done!

I love this idea, the stained glass look with the rainbow colors is so refreshing.

Love the black diamond grid quilting and YES — the color and light gradation does make it look like sunrise from inside a cathedral! Beautiful.
