Make an improv block the center of your composition and add your own borders - maybe curved strips or asymmetrical open space - it's completely up to you to make your quilt your own. This process can be adapted to any size quilt. We will use Cindy's improv block technique using scraps and discuss border option designs.
Cindy has been quilting for years, has a fine arts degree and has become widely regarded in the modern quilt world! Stitch is excited to be partnering with her in offering this workshop!
Appropriate for all levels of sewists.
Strips and scraps of cotton fabric - can be solids, batiks, tone on tone, small scale prints, or a combination. Avoid large scale prints. If you don't have strips and scraps handy, 8-12 fat quarters should provide a good variety.
1/2 yard neutral for background, or several fat quarters in several different tones or shades of the same color. Neutral doesn't have to be boring - it's simply a place for the eye to rest!
