Love to create repeating blocks in your quilts but tired of the same patterns? Step away from the ordinary and try your hand at a new technique-based approach to improvisation. Gorgeous photographs illustrate 10 beautiful projects where Amy Friend seamlessly bridges the gap between improvised design and technical execution. Discover a unique approach to creating one-of-a-kind blocks with guided exercises that explore scale, symmetry and alternate gridwork. Then, with Amy's help, you'll have the opportunity to design your own patterns. You really can have a dash of the unexpected through improv with the precision of paper piecing and still create those secondary patterns we all love in quilts made using traditional blocks.

With a modern spin, Improv Paper Piecing gracefully guides the reader, step-by-step, through improvisationally designing your own paper piecing patterns to strategically setting the grid---so that the end result is a masterful, unique quilt of repeated blocks.

If you're looking for a fun exciting challenge, the party is here. Step over and stitch outside the box.

Editorial Reviews

"Improv Paper Piecing finds the perfect balance between the freedom of improv design and the structure of having the ability to perfectly replicate those designs. The techniques taught here, through many gorgeous modern quilt designs, fulfill a quilter's need to be creative and stretch design muscles, yet also feed the perfectionist tendencies that ail so many quilters. I can't wait to spend more time with this book!"
