I've got another new class on Creativebug that just launched yesterday! My Improvisational Patchwork for Beginners workshop is a great way to try your hand at improvisational quilting to create completely unique and one-of-a-kind blocks. This type of quilting is by far my favorite because I love that it forces you to design intuitively, rather than relying on a pattern, and the results are stunning, organic blocks that require no precise cutting or measuring of fabric. In the class I'll teach you three different block designs: the log cabin, the stacked coin, and the wonky cross, and I'll show you how you can combine these blocks as well. All three of these blocks have their roots in traditional quilt designs, but with improvisational piecing, they have a more modern feeling, full of wonderful irregularities that would never occur with traditional patchwork construction.
We had such a great day during my shoot and I'm so excited that one of my favorite, and most popular, classes that I teach in person is now available for anyone to watch, from any place, at any time. To take this class, and any other of the great workshops that Creativebug offers, you can become a subscriber for only $4.95 a month, which gives you access to all of the hundreds of classes on the site. It's seriously such an amazing deal!
