Cindy Grisdela Workshop – Artful Improv – Permission to Play!
May 29 @ 9:00 am - 4:00 pm$50.00 – $60.00
Artful Improv – Permission to Play! – Learn to create your own original quilts with no pattern using improvisational piecing techniques. Students will learn to let go of the “rules” and piece blocks in an intuitive, free form fashion. We will explore contemporary improv blocks, improv circles, and angled stripes, plus insets and curved strips. Use strips and scraps to add interest and make your design your own. There’s no measuring or precise cutting and each quilt will be unique.
We will discuss color choices and using simple design principles to create an original dynamic composition. The extended class goes into these ideas in more depth, as well as discussing quilting options and alternative finishing techniques.
Basic sewing skills and a machine in good working order necessary. Best for intermediate to advanced quilters ready to take the next step to creating original designs. The quilt shown is an example of a quilt I’ve made using the techniques taught in this class.
