IMPROV PIECING Improvisational quilting is about technique and process, rather than a pattern. You start with some fabric, attack it with your rotary cutter and maybe an idea of what you want to do with it, then finish with a bold design.  Alternatively, many of the techniques taught in this workshop can be taught in 3 hour classes. Can be done individually or in a series. Each class would cover a unique technique. 1, 2, or 3 days workshop options. Intensive 5 day workshop also available.
