Each of the bloggers on the tour will be reviewing the book and offering a giveaway copy of The Improv Handbook For Modern Quilters.
But that’s not all…
Over 250 people signed on to test quilt the ten scores, or flexible patterns, featured in The Improv Handbook – without visual references. There were 165 quilts completed and submitted for inclusion into the book, but we only had room to print 22. During the next month all 165 of these quilts will debut, score by score, on the blog hop. After each of the test quilt galleries are revealed I will be reposting them here: Test Quilts.
And there is more…
Some of the participants in the tour are test quilters whose quilts are published in the book. Each will share their story and process of working through the score they were assigned to test.
May you find the insightful reviews of the book, the test quilt galleries, and the test quilter’s individual stories encouraging, as you begin your own improvisational journey with the Improv Handbook.
There is NO ONE WAY to proceed, and the ONLY WAY to succeed is YOUR WAY.
Continue to check in during the month as I update the links below to the specific posts for each stop on the tour, as well as share information about giveaway end dates.
