Improv Quilting 101 class

Improvisational Patchwork (Improv 101) with Rossie Hutchinson of Fresh Modern Quilts

Tuesday, October 29, 2013 - 10:15am - 1:15pm

In this 3-hour workshop, you’ll learn to limit decision-making while continually piecing.  You’ll also learn to make decisions quickly, avoid falling in love with your answers, and accept change when it occurs.  We’re going to make new memories and form new habits that will free you up for future adventures.  You’ll leave class with perfectly imperfect quilt blocks and a the confidence to stitch into the unknown.

Here is an example of blocks created in a previous class.

Students need bring only their sewing machines and a rotary cutter and mat or pair of scissors and then just go with the flow.
