Improv Paper Piecing

A Modern Approach to Quilt Design
Amy Friend


Love to create repeating blocks in your quilts but tired of the same patterns? Step away from the ordinary and try your hand at a new technique-based approach to improvisation. Gorgeous photographs illustrate 10 beautiful projects where Amy Friend seamlessly bridges the gap between improvised design and technical execution.

Discover a unique approach to creating one-of-a-kind blocks with guided exercises that explore scale, symmetry and alternate gridwork. Then, with Amy's help, you'll have the opportunity to design your own patterns. You really can have a dash of the unexpected through improv with the precision of paper piecing and still create those secondary patterns we all love in quilts made using traditional blocks.

With a modern spin, Amy gracefully guides the reader, step-by-step, through improvisationally designing your own paper piecing patterns to strategically setting the grid so that the end result is a masterful, unique quilt of repeated blocks.
