Explore Creative Piecing with Curves, Strips, Slabs and More by Nicholas Ball

Pre-order
Book Description

Explore the freeing power of improvised piecing with Nicholas Ball in his first book, Inspiring Improv. Learn his step-by-step technique based process to explore six fundamental piecing structures. Practice how to stitch fabric together in an improvisational manner to create blocks or sections before using them to sew unique quilts all your own.

Improv piecing doesn't have to mean chaotic end results. Look to the eight original projects included to see how to create sophisticated quilts with structure focusing on repeating blocks or large scale scrappy designs. Follow along as Nicholas walks you through his original inspiration and follow his plan through to finished pieces, as he discusses which combination of his core piecing methods he used and how to achieve showstopping, exciting work.

From simple strip piecing through to complex circles and rings, you will be eager to experiment making slabs, gentle curves, insets, triangles and even 9 patch and Log Cabin stacks, and then use them as a stepping stone to sewing original full sized designs.
