Details

Improv quilting is a random and spontaneous way to quilt that is just plain fun. Sometimes, though, the make-it-up-as-you-go approach can feel a little overwhelming and chaotic to those just learning to quilt. In Improvising Tradition, author Alexandra Ledgerwood shows there are three methods at the heart of this unique style of quilting that, when combined with traditional techniques you know and love, allow for gorgeous quilts time and again. It's an amazing way of taking traditional quilting techniques and giving them a modern flare through improvisational piecing that is inspiring and exciting.

Through full-color, step by step illustrations, and the 18 inspiring quilted patterns shared in Improvising Tradition you'll learn to embrace spontaneity with confidence as Alex demonstrates how using strip piecing, strata piecing, and slice-and-insert techniques to make improv quilts that are totally one of a kind - even when working from a pattern. Learn to use scrap strips to make unique log cabin blocks, wonky blocks, shattered chevrons, and more. When working with strata - likened to crazy piecing of past - you'll get fresh modern results that create fun ombre effects and can even be used in quilt-as-you-go patterns. Slice-and-insert is the most daring of techniques and will have you cutting into perfectly good blocks of fabric to create really interesting new designs!

Whether this is your first step into the foray of improv quilting or you're an experienced quilter that already knows what a fun style of quilting this is, you are sure to discover inspiration and valuable tips and tricks in the pages of Improvising Tradition. It's truly a book that every quilter will want to add to their library.
