and the doodle goes on {Improv Handbook Score #4}

The process is slow and meandering, but these triangle slices have settled into place.  And actually, this part has become a new favorite.  I guess that's the thing about doodling, you never know when you might uncover a new delight.

This piece, more ho-hum, was designed to fill a specific corner of my improv quilt-in-progress to help the colors and patterns flow.  It makes a helpful connection that's all.  I've already moved on.

These blocks, these are my next thing, my present doodle.  They come together quickly and fill up the space, like those houses.  I wonder how I'll set them.  I know I want more!

Even though I'm cutting everything for this quilt without a ruler, a la The Improv Handbook, I do measure by eye with my cutting mat at times.  This allows me to keep things in similar proportion so that my blocks will sew together more easily.  A little structure, I suppose, is how I roll.

So here's my stack of friendly colors:  pale orchid with violet, cantaloupe with carrot, sky with ocean blue... All ready to be sliced and sewn today.  The doodle goes on.
