improvising technique ~ curve piecing workshop

This week in the studio I’ve prepared to teach a workshop for the East Bay Modern Quilters on Saturday. Woo hoo! We are doing eight-hours of Get Your Curve On! There are 17 on board. I hope it will be a topsy-turvy ride for everyone.

This is a workshop focused on technique and not design but it’s still all about improv. I don’t think a lot of  quilt makers realize this fact: Improvisation of design has its limits. Real innovation begins with the improvisation of technique and tools. My unsuspecting students think I’m going to tell them exactly how to sew a perfect curve! Tehehe… Are they in for a surprise!

I’ll take lots of pictures and report on the outcome next week.

  2. I’m intrigued by your comments on improv and design. Wish I were taking the class-how cool that you already have 17 in the class! If you felt so inclined, I would love to read more about your thoughts on inprov/design/innovation.
