21st finish - Ad Hoc Improv Project

My 21st finish is my Ad Hoc Improv Project. I pieced this last year I think - or maybe it was two years ago. It turned out 39.5" long and 40" wide.

My next project will be to finish my piece that I started at QuiltCon in Feb. of 2014 in a class I took with the Gee's Bend quilters. I had them sign my piece.

How lovely to get those signatures! And your first finish here is wonderful too -- love those little yellow triangles! I don't know if I could have stopped there. A challenge for next year!

How did you finish the edges on that? Is it a pillow case or a facing? It's very clean! Great job. :D

Very nice! I like your Ad Hoc piece. I'm looking forward to seeing the next finish.

Wonderful to have those signatures. Are you using denim and twill? I've been saving our old jeans hoping to use them some day. Congratulations on a good finish and a fun new start. Thanks for linking with AHIQ again. It's always good to read so many different ideas from other quilters.

I love your two quilts, improvised and/or liberated as in Gwen Marston liberated style.
And what a fun opportunity to be able to take a class with the gals from Gee's Bend, lucky you!
Thanks for sharing, I do like your style.

How lucky you were to take a Gees Bend class. They are strong admirable women. The other improv is so subtle, but has the two tiny spots of yellow flame, great.

I like your Ad Hoc piece a lot lovely subtle, interesting colours and, as others have said, those clever little spots of yellow. The Gees Bend piece looks full of promise - what a great way to be starting the new year.

I remember that piece from QuiltCon! I love it and am glad you are going to finish it. What a great treasure you will have.

21 finishes, a respectble number, my friend!

I particularly like the 21st finish, the repetition of the triangle shapes in different shades/same colors is very effective. I too am envious that you got to take the Gee's Bend class. Will look forward to progress on that piece!
