Robin got a head start with her layout!
First, I explained the basics of improv piecing and how I pieced my quilt together. The method I like to use is "planned"improv sewing. I gave my students a bunch of ideas to try and methods to use, and they were off making! I took a few pictures of their progress throughout the night:
I'm happy to announce I'll be teaching a modified version of this class at Mid Atlantic Mod Sewing Retreat in Lancaster, PA, from April 23-26!!! Registration opens for sponsoring Modern Quilt Guilds on Nov. 1, and general registration opens mid-November. You can sign up for the workshop when you register - all workshop info is here.
In addition, due to popularity, this two session class will also be running again early next year at Pennington Quilt Works! Stay tuned for dates if you are in the NJ/PA/NY/DE area. :)
Meanwhile, my second orange peel top is still progressing... I hope to have the top done by the weekend. Improv piecing can be super time consuming but also quite freeing. I'll just keep chugging along... for the first time in forever (cue Frozen music), I'm pouring my heart and soul into just one project. And it feels good.
