    I kept renewing this book after I checked it out from the library because I wanted to refer to the techniques I will probably buy it This book not only has interesting and beautiful quilts but good tutorials on skills you can apply to any quilt design Without any pressing projects on my plate, I will likely practice some of the techniques from this book to expand my knowledge base.

    Oh In this book I have really found my peeps I get so excited reading about the techniques and thinking about all the improv options I have open to me I wouldn t have thought this book would be so rich and eye opening, but it is truly inspirational

    I really liked the cover of this how to book the juxtaposition of aqua and lime next to slate gray, the pebble quilting on the slate gray, the double crosshatch quilting on the blue and green fabrics BUT the improvisation techniques just don t look good aesthetically Free piecing a cycle of auditioning, cutting, sewing and reviewing looks too piecemeal and too imperfect for my tastes to go to the trouble of quilting a large blanket However, I do plan to hold on to this library book a bit l I really liked the cover of this how to book the juxtaposition of aqua and lime next to slate gray, the pebble quilting on the slate gray, the double crosshatch quilting on the blue and green fabrics BUT the improvisation techniques just don t look good aesthetically Free piecing a cycle of auditioning, cutting, sewing and reviewing looks too piecemeal and too imperfect for my tastes to go to the trouble of quilting a large blanket However, I do plan to hold on to this library book a bit longer because there are some projects that I think I could adapt into a quilt I would want to complete, like the Shattered Quilt and descriptions of techniques and stitches of machine quilting for the home sewer that are useful

    Reread the book Sometimes it pays.It seems a good way to be introduced to improv piecing.At first it seemed an oxymoron patterns for improv quilts But Gering and Pedersen make it work There is enough structure for the uninitiated to feel secure enough to experiment the experimenting is personal improvisation.Techniques are introduced, variations given, then projects using one orof the variations When a project uses techniques from other sections of the book, there is adequate cross r Reread the book Sometimes it pays.It seems a good way to be introduced to improv piecing.At first it seemed an oxymoron patterns for improv quilts But Gering and Pedersen make it work There is enough structure for the uninitiated to feel secure enough to experiment the experimenting is personal improvisation.Techniques are introduced, variations given, then projects using one orof the variations When a project uses techniques from other sections of the book, there is adequate cross referencing.Good for beginners and there are enough hints that someone already improvising would find something new as well

    I love this quilting book It really is in a class by itself and so unique from all the other quilting books I ve read The techniques and quilts in the book are so fresh and modern and both authors do such a wonderful job blending their voices seamlessly through the book I cannot recommend this book enough I ve already made one quilt from the book and am about to start on my second one A must have for both experienced quilters and beginners.

    I m glad I borrowed this from the library rather than buying it There are ideas in this book that I liked, but exactly nothing I want to make Or anyway, nothing I need the book on hand if I want to make my own version of I ll probably make my sister some variation on the place mats, but I don t need my hand held via book ownership to work it out This is a beautiful book, but it didn t speak to me the way some other craft quilting books do.
