Kinda Sorta but not Really

Close up

Top Done
OK pics you say!! I got em!!
If anyone guessed the pattern is Impromptu by Rachel Griffith however I do have to be very clear mine is gonna look different because I was working with my stash and what I already had!! She used a layer cake (I only wish I had one of those in my stash) and I was working with the four inch squares I get from doing the greatest swaps EVER!! And then since I used four inch square there I chose not to cut the squares in the bigger ones ten inches I do love the proportion of her quilt! So I did take my own liberties in this guy! But hers was my inspiration! I have had it sitting in my list of LOVES for some time now! (OK since the post went up on her page on 21 Oct 2011) The big squares were also just things i had in my stash and most of them were 1/4 yard cuts, yet another reason I could not make them 10 inches!! LOL Oh, and not all that long ago I had gone to the store and after having a very difficult time finding white on whites I bought like SEVEN Five yards cuts of white on white! You can ALWAYS use that right!!! 
So since mine is inspired by her pattern and I did NOT follow the directions (hehe imagine that me NOT following directions!!) I am calling mine Kinda, Sorta, but not Really! I crack me up! Besides I didn't know another word for Impromptu... I guess I could open up the Thesaurus

ad-lib, dashed off, extemporaneous, extempore, extemporized, fake, faked, improv, improviso, off the cuff, offhand, played by ear, shot from the hip, spontaneous, spur-of-the-moment, thrown off, tossed off, unpremeditated, unprepared, unscripted, unstudied, vamped, whipped up, winged*                            All right... after reading these I think I might go with ad-lib!!! We shall see what sicks!! I like it I think I might need to keep this list on hand! I also like unscripted, and spontaneous and improv!! Yup! And they ALL sound just like me (to be honest not so fond of the fake!!) Well, Honeyman is on for another 12 hours so I am not sure what is up for the Kids and I! Everyone have a GREAT Sunday!!! Josie
