Improv Piecing

I have a Improv piecing class in the store next Friday. A new technique for some to learn that have never tried it. I typed up the notes and the pattern for the project when I did the HST Block Party pattern about a month ago, but I hadn't stitched the sample.
I finally got behind the sewing machine and started stitching the Improv blocks.
Then a few more blocks before cutting them up for my star test block. This is what I ended up with.
An interesting first block. I think I need to refine my colour selection. A little less colour in the neutrals and a slightly dark mix of colours. Anything that has white in it or the pastel have to be pulled as one of my star points is a bit washed out. On to the next block and we will see what happens and where this adventure in Improv piecing goes.
Until Next Time
Keep Stitching

It looks good to me! I'm so happy you're teaching a class on that! It seems like an interesting process and a great way to use up scraps? I know very little about it. The blocks I've seen online are so pretty, though!
