This workshop introduces students at any level to the fun of improvisational quilting. Students will make 7 different fabric components which can then be used to create an original quilt. This method offers a chance to explore personal design ideas without using rulers, templates, pins or preconceived ideas. Students will be free to make their own color combinations and join them in a "medallion" or "column" form. Included will be discussion of comparing traditional/ modern-improvisational styles with 23 of Robin’s own quilts to illustrate the information.
