Separation of Church and State - A Work in Progress

The improv bug has definitely hit. That paired with overflowing scrap bins made doing some improv piecing a good idea this week. I separated my scraps into two piles -- brights and tones. This is what I did with some of the tones.

It's a puzzle:

Added a grey stripe and the improv pieces felt done:

Then I had a thought to add a border to showcase the quilting I had in mind. Also the border would help contain the busyness of the improv piecing.

Trying out some greys:

And then some Essex linen:

In the end, I switched out the grey for natural Essex linen and there it was -- Separation of Church and State.

I'll let you decide which section is which. Any guesses? ;)

Hope you are having a wonderful weekend!


  1. Great job with the improv. Good luck with quilting.

  2. I can't get over how much I like this! It is fabulous :)

  3. Looks great. Especially with the Essex linen.

  4. Very cool! Looks like it was really fun to make.
