Explore the freeing power of improvised piecing with Nicholas Ball in 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. 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 show-stopping, 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 steppingstone to sewing original full-sized designs.
