crane improv quilt blocks

I'm sharing my WIP here, just because it's inspired by the challenge. I knew I wouldn't be able to finish this one since the person who makes my sewing possible was out of town taking care of his mother this week (cancer: keeping daughters-in-law from quilting since 1884!).

 

But I didn't want to do nothing, so I took the opportunity to slice into a Robert Kaufman crane print I've had sitting around. I fussy cut 7 crane images and then went at them improv-style. I started out thinking it was going to be something like a wonky log cabin, but the cranes seemed to want a straight setting and I happily diverged from log cabin.

 

I don't think I've ever improvised an entire project before! Which is crazy since I improvise pants and stuffed animals and muffins all the time. I'm having a lot of fun with these, not sure where I'll go next, but I thought I'd share since I wouldn't have cut into that piece of fabric at all if it weren't for Project Quilting. Thanks Kim and everyone!
