There are a few quilters whose work and words I find myself returning to time and again. One of those people is quilt artist Sheri Lynn Wood at daintytime. She taught a class on improvisational curves at QuiltCon (which I’m still kicking myself for not taking), and is just a really thoughtful maker of beautiful things. My personal style is very different, and very controlled and geometric for many things, but when I work on improv, I always turn to read her thoughts and see her work.
Well, in great news for me and my growth as a quilter, she has a book in the works with STC on the different varieties of improvisation patchwork, and she has put out a call for help with projects. The book will not be a pattern book, but will be explain the process of different types of improvisational piecing and provide guided examples. You can read about the book and her call for contributions on her post right here as well as find a link to the questionnaire if you are interested in helping out. The deadline is March 25.
If you’ve got the time and drive, go fill out the questionnaire!
