"Rules and Options of Planned Improv Piecing"

Sarah likes options... but she also likes a plan. This lecture and trunk show will discuss how Sarah uses her planning nature to develop rules for herself which drive her Planned Improv quilt design work. She shares work in a series and shows how she iterates on a design. Sarah explains how she develops a formula for her project. Quilters leave with specific ideas of how to develop a set of rules to guide their improv piecing.

"Improv Triangles 4 Ways"

Join us for a playful exploration of pieced triangles. Sarah will introduce techniques for piecing four different styles of improv triangles. These are the building blocks for infinite possibilities used individually or in combination with one another. Students may choose to put all their pieces together into a sampler quilt or use the elements they create to finish four smaller composition​s.

"Making it Up as I Go"

Join me for a guided tour of my quilting process as I describe the creative but, often unknown, path I travel as I make my quilts. Whether the quilt seed starts from a question, a sketch, my scraps or my imagination, I am never completely sure of where it will take me. I am truly often making it up as I go along.

"Use Your Words"

Words in quilts have a long history, whether it’s just names, initials, dates or phrases. Most often the words have identified the maker(s) or been a collection of names within the quilt blocks as in friendship quilts. Those were often stamped, inked or appliqued. I will teach you how to piece your words using the method created by Tonya Ricucci in her book Word Play Quilts. This is indeed a playful and easy way to add words to your quilts as it is “liberated,” allowing you to modify your words – changing the height, size or setting to suit your quilt. Once you learn this method you may be tempted to add words to all your quilts.
