    Improv Class

    Dancing Chopsticks 25x25, pieced by Lesley Morris. Alex, I made this at the beginning of the Pandemic when you started your Lives. I used your fabric line, Mirage that I received in a Quilty Box along with your Chopstick Block. I Loved it, made it. It's been in two quilt shows on Kauai. This photo was taken in the gallery with it's pegboard wall. Dancing Chopsticks now hangs in my home. Looking forward to your Improve Class. Big Aloha for all you do for all of us! Lesley Morris

    Alex, I have been a viewer and member since the pandemic started. Currently, I am watching your Improv on FB and enjoying it very much. Started with a couple of match stick blocks and couldn't stop! I think 80, 4.5 inch blocks, unfinished, is a good place to start piecing as a top. I am using Moda Grunge fabrics. I love sewing with Grunge. I also use it for embroidery backgrounds. I am still working on the embroidery with the circles, which is also a pieced Grunge background. Thank you for your great FB lives, shows, books, and products!

        This small project inspired me and being able to use my left over fabrics from "Color My World" was a perfect use for those fabrics. I'm trimming mine down to 5 1/2" but haven't decided how small or big to make it. Probably when I get tired of making blocks. But this project gave me a kick start to get back to quilting because I've been so busy with the Classes I'm doing on-line with Joanne Sharpe. Thanks to Alex who got me involved with Mixed Media which is an entirely new supply of art supplies. Hard to keep up with it all.
