This quilt is called Peacock Crossing and is from the Shape Based section. The book is broken into three sections: traditional block based inspiration, shape based and object based. I explain how you can use any of those approaches to arrive at improvisationally influenced paper pieced designs. If you are going to Savannah for QuiltCon next week, you can visit this quilt in the Lucky Spool booth.
I have been able to share my book with a few early reviewers and love what Heather Grant had to say about Improv Paper Piecing, She said “Amy’s quilts have always drawn me in because they are precise, yet organic. I couldn’t quite figure out how she managed this balance between two opposites until I picked up her book, Improv Paper Piecing. In this book, she outlines how to use paper piecing and improv to create quilts that are visually organized, yet free. This is a great book for any quilter looking to explore design using a technique to create one of a kind quilts.” Pat Sloan will be sharing a review of my book on her blog next week so be sure to follow her!
I look forward to sharing more quilts in upcoming weeks! If your guild is interested in an improv paper piecing workshop or trunk show, be sure to check out my Teaching/Lectures page and get in touch!
