Large-Scale Minimal Improv Workshop
Advanced Beginner-Intermediate piecing skills are a prerequisite.
In this full-day workshop, you'll learn tips and strategies to create successful projects and learn the process of "piecing with purpose" while using intentional fabric choices instead of scraps,
commonly reserved for improv quilting.
Get inspired by your fiber selections and let the art of improv quilting lead you to make your own one-of-a-kind throw-sized quilt.
Full Day / 6hr / 3hr mini
Large-Scale Minimal Improv Pillow Workshop
Learn the full minimal improv technique and scale to apply to pillow designs.
Students take their piecing home to quilt with pillow finishing instructions.
Large-Scale Minimal Improv Trunkshow
A dozen projects featuring my improv process, fabric selection process, a breakdown demonstration of how I assemble my "blocks", a Q&A time allotment, and take-home documents with the basic tips and outline of my process.
