Summary

Summary

Welcome to structured improvisation, where there's a plan in place but still plenty of room to play! Structured improvisation is perfect for using fabric scraps quilters have on hand - everything works and anything goes. Learn three methods for sewing rectangles, squares, strips, and even oddly shaped fabric pieces together; then use the resulting blocks or panels in a dozen dazzling step-by-step quilt patterns. Start by working with just one color at a time to get the hang of improv piecing; then progress to mixing colors and prints in beautiful, colorful quilts that will give a home to every scrap that quilters have ever saved.
