Description
 
Forget step-by-step instructions and copycat designs. In The Improv Handbook for Modern Quilters,
Sherri Lynn Wood presents a flexible approach to quilting that breaks
free of old paradigms. Instead of traditional instructions, she presents
10 frameworks (or scores) that create a guiding, but not limiting,
structure. To help quilters gain confidence, Wood also offers detailed
lessons for stitching techniques key to improvisation, design and
spontaneity exercises, and lessons on color. Every quilt made from one
of Wood’s scores will have common threads, but each one will look
different because it reflects the maker’s unique interpretation.
Featured throughout the book are Wood’s own quilts and a gallery of
contributor works chosen from among the hundreds submitted when she
invited volunteers to test her scores during the making of this
groundbreaking work.
