    This is a quilt created using only a few block sizes that will fit together easily. The multilayered freehand cut curves make the quilt look very improvisational. This combines two techniques for creating unique improvisational quilts. First, I will demonstrate how to cut and sew freehand multi-layered curve blocks. Secondly, we will combine these pieced blocks with blocks cut from the background fabric for a planned layout that looks completely improvised. You can create a quilt that looks random and improvisational quickly and easily!

    This workshop is a surprisingly easy no-math approach to making a modern quilt using just a few basic block sizes. Block sizes are based on Fibonacci math—a number series common to many things in nature such as the spirals in seashells. Don't worry about the math! You can create a quilt that looks modern, random and improvisational quickly and easily using this method. This is also a great "stash buster" quilt because you can use fat quarters of fabric leftover from other projects.
