The Second Workshop of 2019 will be Krista’s Speed Date with Improv quilt

Speed Date with Improv

Think of this workshop as speed dating with improvisational piecing techniques that include curves and free-cutting without rulers. It will be fast-paced and a lot of fun: several techniques are introduced and demonstrated one after the other with very little time to second guess, stress or obsess over perfection. Every student will end up with a unique, original improv sampler quilt! The focus here is to explore line, shape and happenstance in abstract design. We’ll learn how to jigsaw the improv elements together, seeking balance and creative design opportunities. Some pre-cutting is required.
