The products featured in this post were given to me by Island Batik.

This month our Island Batik Ambassador challenge is Whimsical and Wonky. I knew just what I wanted to make. One of the quilts that I have given away and miss the most is the Improv Tumbler Mini that I made for the 2017 MQG swap. This month I'll be making a larger scale Improv Tumbler quilt with my Bright Paisley Dot 10" squares.

These tumbler block units were cut with a rotary cutter without the use of a straight edge or template. I started by slicing the 10" square roughly in half, so they are all about 5" tall, but then I just chopped those strips up. I'm looking forward to getting this lovely rainbow pile up onto the design wall.

Stay tuned!

Nothing like updating the WIP list each quarter to cement what is languishing in the sewing room. Like #2 and #3 that just needed binding three months ago... and still do. Eek. To be fair, most of Q3 is summer break for my kids and I'm always overly optimistic about what I'll get done in the sewing room.

In Q3, I helped my kids each complete the end of four rounds of the Kids Quilt Round Robin, and I finished off my 100 blocks in 100 days. I completed five quilts, three of which were on our my Q3 list, samples for my Planned Improv: Scrappy Squares workshop and my Back and Forth baby quilt. Plus I designed and completed Vincent's Ear and Fall Fleurish.

Here's my comprehensive project list, categorized by stage of the project. My OMG October Goal is obviously to finish my Halloween quilt. It's quilted and trimmed. I just need to finish making the binding and get it bound. Maybe I can have "binding day" and get the binding on all three of those!

I've shifted gears in my sewing a bit in the last quarter. First, I took on the City Sampler "100 blocks in 100 days" sew along. I'm so excited to be using my Tula Pink fabric and keeping up with the daily blocks. Also, I'm prepping for teaching my first quilt workshop this Fall. This means sewing up samples for the couple guilds who need them and finishing some other demo quilts. Lastly, I'm so close to having my first pattern ready for sale.

I've decided to organize my list this quarter by stage of completion. I know the list is terribly long, but I like to have it all in one place.
