Improv Round Robin Quilt

Back in November, I shared the process when the Comedy Club Quilters Improv small group did an improv round robin. Since then, my quilt top has been hanging on my design wall crying out to be finished. Presented with a gap in my "Must finish immediately" list, I got to matchstick quilting it yesterday.

Originally I had thought I would make my topper into a bag. The longer I looked at it, the more I wanted it to be a quilt. In the end, I'm very happy with my decision.

My finished quilt is 24" x 28". I added a block of each member's signature fabric across the bottom, but otherwise left the improv topper untouched. Today I finished it off with solid black binding to frame the whole piece out.
Big thanks to Bonnie, Trae, Chris S, Chris D, and Susan who all had a hand in this quilt! What fun it was to collaborate with all of you.

And thanks to Sherri Lynn Wood who literally wrote the book on Improv and inspired our round robin.
