Develop your creative voice with this expressive form of patchwork! Improv quilting is done without rulers or patterns and is a fun, relaxing way to play with color and form. We will use a variety of improvisational techniques taught in Sherri Lynn Wood's fabulous book The Improv Handbook for Modern Quilters.
All sewists ages 16+ with beginner sewing skill and up are welcome, no quilting experience necessary.
