Quilt Improv – Incredible Modern Quilts from Everyday Inspirations – by Lucie Summers, is a bright, appealing book that guides you through the process of making contemporary, improvisational quilts. If you have ever wanted to try your hand at making modern quilts, this is the book for you! It will give you all the tips, techniques, and project ideas to get you started on constructing colourful quilts in the Improv style.
What we love about this book, is that it teaches you the building blocks of the Improv style – including appliquéd circle, basket weave, chevrons, cross block, quarter circles and more. These foundation blocks are then used in the 12 Quilt designs. Lucie Summers shares her design idea and design plan for each quilt which guides you through her creative process. This in turn will show you how you can be inspired by things around you to create your own individual designs.
Quilt Improv is beautifully illustrated and photographed, and will show you everything you need to know to start making your own improvisational quilts.
