It’s Week 2 of the 30 Days of Improv QAL and there’s a new modern improv play with L-shapes for you to explore!
Last week you got started with your tool of choice and the adventure to be had with stripes!
The weekly challenges build on their intensity so that you continue to level up your improv skills.
The shape of the week: L-shapes
This was a new shape for me, and I was curious to see what direction my improv play would go in.
What I love about the shape is you can go as linear or wonky as you’d like.
You’ll notice that I started off quite basic before incorporating a little more asymmetry and abstract takes on the shape.
It’s fun to mix it up and keep the ideas flowing.
Since focusing on L-shapes is new to me, I started off super simple to get a feel for how the shape comes together.
I loved that it also meant I explored working with just 2 colours from my 30 days of Improv QAL fabric pull.
I stepped up my L-Shape exploration in this improv quilt block. I was curious about exploring compound L-Shapes, stacking them and connecting them. It took me a minute to work through the composition I was after, but love where it landed.
How many L-Shapes can you spot?!
I went bold with my bock today and focused on maximizing the L-shape.
There’s even a little asymmetry that I threw in there to keep it fun and interesting.
I also made the realization today that I have more purple than orange on hand. So, I figured I should lean into that 😉
It was all about stacking the L-Shapes today.
I wanted to see the colour gradation and focus on just those glorious peachy pinks that I love so much.
I haven’t done a ton of tiny piecing with this shape and, you know how much I love my tiny piecing.
I was thinking about connections and doing a trifecta of L-shapes in different directions to build in some movement.
But my piecing failed me!
I’ll still be able to salvage the block in my bigger composition, but I missed the mark. That’s ok! I have a better idea of what to do next time 😊
Can you believe you’re already halfway through piecing your 30 Days of Improv QAL blocks? Week 2 stepped things up a little bit, and if you’re feeling a little more challenged compared to Week 1, that’s totally normal!
The important part is that you keep showing up. By working through those challenging days, you’ll grow and expand your skill set. Don’t give up!
