Improv piecing with pre-cut strips and scraps

"Angle Improv" class with Fabrications 2.5" pre-cut strips
(Strip collection by Blank Quilting Corp.)
Open. Select. Sew!

This is the procedure for working with those packages of pre-cut 2.5" strips. Easy-peasy!

Wanna try it?
I'm teaching a class next week, Tuesday, August 12, on improvisational piecing that uses a package of Fabrications pre-cut strips and scraps from your stash. It can't get any simpler than that!

Every time I use this improvisation piecing technique, I am amazed at the creative possibilities—color, composition, movement. The piecing is easy, the cutting is liberating and the design possibilities are limitless!

Come and join me for a dose of this strippy creativity! Call Pins and Needles Quilt Shop at [423] 668-8734 to register. There are only a couple spaces left.

Here are a few examples of quilts I've made with this technique...

And here is a little peek of a recent project that combines improv piecing with Dresden Plate appliqués. It's just too much fun!
