Taught by Heather Jones
Learning how to improvise block construction is a cornerstone of modern quilting. Heather Jones teaches three ways to experiment with improvisational piecing: with a log-cabin block, a stacked-coin block, and with a wonky cross block. This method of creating patchwork is perfect for mixing colorful fabric scraps, allowing you to forget about perfect measurements and straight lines, and learn to play with your creative intuition. At the end, you’ll understand how to combine blocks to produce one-of-a-kind, organic quilts – no “pattern” required.
Learn how to:
  • Cut out fabric without measuring
  • Piece patchwork without overthinking your choices
  • Create log cabin blocks
  • Create stacked coin blocks
  • Create wonky cross blocks
  • Combine different blocks to make unique quilt designs
