Our speaker this month was Amy Friend (@duringquiettime). Per our contract with her, we were not able to record her talk. Amy spoke about her journey toward improv foundation paper piecing. She started with traditional block patterns, exploring ways to make them asymmetrical. As she made her version of the blocks, she discovered that rotating blocks created interesting movement in the designs. Those explorations led to development of shape-based blocks, followed by using objects as block inspirations. She also began exploring the deconstruction of blocks for unexpected results. Throughout her quilt journey she has played with creating interesting negative space in her designs for a dramatic modern quilt vibe.
