Details: Product Description Forget step-by-step instructions and copycat designs. In The Improv Handbook for Modern Quilters Review " The Improv Handbook for Modern Quilters is on my all-time-favorite-most-beautifully-photographed-books list. There is just so much content (176 pages!) and fuel for creativity in here. I'll be honest, I'm a picture person and I usually don't read everything in a quilting book. But I sat down with this one and it's been so interesting. I actually keep it on my coffee table!"--Faith Jones, Fresh Lemons "As someone who enjoys improv quilting, I found myself poring over Sherri's book day after day, quickly jotting down notes and techniques to try with my next project."--Lish Dorset, Made & Remade blog "Despite how it may 'seam, ' quilting isn't all about rules! Quilting can be an exhilarating way to channel your creativity and express yourself. This book is focused more on exploration than explanation--a perfect mindset for beginners!"--Powell's Books Staff Pick "I could learn a lot from this book--I want to buy it."--Kaffe Fassett "If improv scares you, check this book out because it lets you think about improv in a different way. This book makes you want to let go of control!"--Stephanie Kendron, Modern Sewciety podcast "One of the best quilting books I've ever read. Why? Because this book empowers readers to tap a creative vein and improvise with scissors and a pile of stash fabric."--Jennifer Ackerman-Haywood, Craft Sanity review "Refreshing, inspiring use of color and pattern and educational--a must-have book."--Brandon Mably "The whole look and feel of this book is glorious. You want to turn every page. You want to read it like a novel . . . there are life lessons here as well as quilt lessons."--Bonnie K. Hunter, Quiltville "Wood offers a series of techniques, guidelines and lessons on color choice for those ready to explore improvisational quilting. Her book is loaded with full-color photos and examples to inspire."--Dallas Morning News "Wood provides a comprehensive overview of improvisational techniques."--Library Journal About the Author Sherri Lynn Wood is an artist working in Oakland, CA.
