The Improv Handbook for Modern Quilters - Sherri Lynn Wood
An exciting new approach for beginning to advanced quilters who want to improvise on their own, with a friend, or with a community of fellow makers!
Forget step-by-step instructions and copycat designs. In The Improv Handbook for Modern Quilters, renowned artist Sherri Lynn Wood presents a flexible approach to quilt making that breaks free of old rules and expectations in a fun, accessible way.
Wood's comprehensive guide features innovative improvisational sewing techniques, tips for accessing intuitive color, mind exercises for spontaneity, and ten "scores" for visual improvisation that free quilters to create quilts unlike anyone else's. These "scores" are not step-by-step instructions like a traditional quilt pattern, but parameters, leads, and limits that allow improvisation to occur -- much in the way a lead sheet provides a jazz musician parameters for improvising during a performance.
