Quilt Improv

Lucie’s fabulous new book, Quilt Improv landed in my Library last week and I have been pouring over it ever since!  I love Lucie’s fabrics and very much enjoyed her porthole quilting class at the Fat Quarterly retreat, as did everyone who took the class.

ImageThe book starts with an introduction into  what improv quilting is and then followed by some wonderful blocks that can be made and built upon.  Lots of techniques used from applique, chain piecing, crazy patching and her signature porthole blocks.
