I've made progress on two projects in the last week. I've already shown you my Waterfall strip sets. And here's the progress on my Island Batik Improv Tumbler. The rows are all pieced. The theme of this challenge is Whimsical and Wonky and I've definitely got the wonky going. Part of the nature of the planned improv in this piece is that the rows kind of do what they want to do. I can see two or three adjustments I'll definitely be making. I'd like the top row to be a little more straight to minimize fabric loss when I trim the top edge. That blue and purple strip that's making a right turn definitely needs some help. And the two pieces in the middle that look like they are kissing might get adjusting as well. I also have my half tumbler scraps to add to the ends of each row.
Another thought: This will be so fun to teach! Who wants to learn how to make your own Improv Tumbler?

It will be good to see how you make your adjustments and how the top comes together!
Its looking great. Not sure how I’d handle it’s wonkieness - I’m sure you’ll figure it out!
I fiddled with it some today. It involved a little bit of seam ripping. :-) Thanks for visiting, Kathleen.

Your tumblers are looking great. Good luck with the rest of piecing.
Thank you, Anja. Today the rows go together. :-)
