Join us on Friday, February 11th from 10:00 am to 2:30 pm for a virtual half-day workshop with Cindy Grisdela. Her topic will be “Mini Improv Puzzle Blocks.”

Create Improv Log Cabin blocks and angled stripes in a variety of sizes and put them together into a unique composition–like a jigsaw puzzle. Students may also choose to include orphan blocks or leftovers from other projects. There’s no measuring or precise cutting and each quilt will be unique. We will discuss color choices and using simple design principles to create an original dynamic composition.

Basic sewing skills and a sewing machine in good working order necessary. Confident beginner to advanced level. Here is the Mini Improv Puzzle Workshop Supply List.
