Improvisational Patchwork with Charlotte Newland



In this exciting class you'll learn improvisational concepts and techniques that will change the way you think about colour, patchwork and your own creativity! You'll break out of your comfort zone and learn to embrace random, improvisational piecing. Then you'll learn free cutting and piecing techniques, including improvisational curves and slash and insert methods. You'll leave class full of inspiration and with a new foundation for bringing your own unique style into your quilts.
