Sunday, September 19, 2021: Cindy Grisdela – 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.
Best for intermediate to advanced quilters ready to take the next step to creating original designs.
The class runs from 9:30 AM-4:00 PM Eastern Time with a 1/2 hour break for lunch. This workshop will be held online via Zoom. The Zoom classroom will open at 9:00 AM and students should be online by 9:15 AM.
