Event Details

Improv quilting allows you to get a little wild with quilting! No need to cut precise pieces, during this one day class we will piece fabrics freely and intuitively to create a beautiful, one of a kind quilted pillow. The contrasting fabric helps add a bit of order and pull the whole design together. While we will cover correct techniques and practice our rotary cutting but this is much more about having fun and creating something unexpected than following a pattern. You can use solids, prints or a combination of the two! This pillow top will finish 17″ x 17″
