More Improv and a bit of a capella

I have been playing a bit more with improv piecing.  I am undecided if I will use the pieces to make a quilt.  Perhaps I will use them to make more notebook covers.  The notebook covers are a fairly quick finish compared to making a quilt.  Although I just had  a "brainstorm" about using these pieces for a modern quilt  with a lot of negative background space. Hmmm... time will tell.  I do love making the notebook covers.
Here are the last few bits I have pieced.  They are not "squared" but rather just have the edges straightened.
While it doesn't look like much, there is a lot of work and time invested in these pieces. But, getting to use up a lot of smaller "scrap" pieces is a joy.  I did pull out a couple of my smaller hand dyed pieces to add to the pile.

Here are the rest of the pieces on my portable "display board."
They clearly need to be pressed again.

I recorded the little a capella video  a couple of nights ago to share
 with whomever wants to hear it.  It is also on YouTube.

Improv and more

It has been interesting to be isolated.  I am an introvert but that doesn't mean I am not a bit social.  I do like interacting with people. So, I have been sitting outside recording some tunes to share on Social Media.  I have no idea if this will work but here is a link to one of them.  My Facebook Page for quilting and other art is HERE

Meanwhile I decided to take the random scraps that have accumulated near the sewing machine and just do some improv sewing; no real plan, just paying attention to value a bit -but no stress!

The yarn that I worked on is now finished and put up in a center pull ball for ease of use.  I also finished another single ply of bamboo that I had spun.

Stay home! Let's flatten the curve.
