My quilt is in "The Improv Handbook for Modern Quilters"

Finally, I can let the cat—or the QUILT—out of the bag.

Early in 2014, I was chosen to be a tester for Sherri Lynn Wood's improvisational patchwork process. She was gathering pieces for her new book, "The Improv Handbook for Modern Quilters: A Guide to Creating, Quilting, and Living Courageously," and invited participants to compose a piece based on one of her "scores." My quilt, "Guitar Strings Improv," was chosen to be included in the book and I received my complimentary copy of the final published book—with a sweet hand-written note from Sherri—this past weekend.

My quilt is on page 38.

I will be participating in one of Sherri's upcoming Blog Hop to promote her book. I'll be able to share thoughts on the improv quiltmaking process at that time.

In the meantime, visit YLQS or book store and pick up a copy of the book! It has a clean layout, the typography is well done, the photos are inspiring and it is packed with information on how to create improvisational patchwork.


  1. You're a rock star! I can say I knew you back in the day.

  2. How exciting! Now to start your own book.

    1. To write a book, I'd have to take a year off like Sherri did. Maybe I can dictate one to a recorder while driving for my rep job.

  3. Good job Veronica! The book looks great and your quilt is a winner!

    1. Thanks, Gwen! It was a very cool experience.

  5. I love your quilt Veronica and I'm so happy to have it included in the book. I look forward to seeing your process post in July. I hope you were able to get in touch with Traci at Abrams to get on the schedule. Congratulations! Well done!

    1. Hi Sherri! My Blog Hop post is ready to launch on July 8. Thanks for including me in the Hop to celebrate your book and your success. Congratulations!
