Create Your Own Improv Quilts Blog Tour Kickoff!
Posted by Deirdre Quirk on Nov 10th 2017
We're so pleased to be the first stop on the blog tour for Rayna Gillman's newest book, Create Your Own Improv Quilts! You probably know Rayna from her other super-popular books, Create Your Own Hand-Printed Cloth and Create Your Own Free-Form Quilts.
In Create Your Own Improv Quilts, Rayna brings her no rulers, no rules, no stress approach to modern quilting. This book is all about allowing yourself to explore and make "mistakes"; after all, most mistakes are just an opportunity to explore a new avenue of design!
What I love most about this book is the way it combines detailed technique sections, like improv paper piecing and working with strips, with tons and tons of inspiration and advice for busting your creative block. The gallery of other inspiring improv quilters (including some in this blog tour!) shows you how each person brings their own style to improv, while the Questions and Answers section is like having Rayna right there with you, encouraging you to take risks and helping you with design conundrums.
We hope you'll join us for the full tour for even more inspiring improv quilting!
