An Impromptu Quilt

Last week I really wanted to sew something. I had been doing a lot of wood working projects and just needed something different. I wanted to just use what I had, so since I have two girls and lots of girly fabrics, I went with an impromptu quilt for a baby girl. I went in my closet and picked out some fabrics (which are either from Hobby Lobby or Lola Pink) and started with this fun quilt block here.

I actually shared the progress on my insta stories, so here is a quick run down of how the rest of the quilt went. All of the other pieces of this quilt, besides the second scrap bin geese quilt block, were just random choices I made as I went. I did this as messy as possible as well hahaha. No pre-ironing, no cutting using rotary cutter, etc. I just wanted to have some fun sewing! My only goal was to make sure it was big enough and looked pretty. Thankfully it turned out great even with me not taking my time at all.

The end result was a fun quilt that measured 29″ x 33″. I really enjoyed this process and I think I liked it more than following an actual quilt pattern! Have you ever made a quilt this way? -jess

    I have never made a quilt this way, but I am looking at my stash right now. I have a half **sed plan in mind.
    This is going to be fun.
    Thank you for the idea

      yay! I know some people need a pattern, but it is fun to just kind of go for it! lol And such a nice way to use scraps up :) Have fun!

      Thank you :) I did. I just made very simple straight lines, although it would have been a fun design to try doing some different directions on different sections.
