I am so very excited to announce my new QAL called play which is all about improv quilting.
Let's start with a base definition -
short for improvisation. (source)
the art or act of improvising, or of composing, uttering, executing, or arranging anything without previous preparation.
Translate that to quilting means:
- no pattern
- no rules
- take chances
- have fun
- free form piecing
- play with color
- embrace mistakes (or throw them away)
- don't overthink it
- its not done until it is done
play with color, play with shapes, play with fabric.
For play, there will not be a pattern, or any step by step tutorials, or any information on fabric requirements.
For play, there will be weekly prompts that you can choose to embrace or ignore, social tags and linkups, a parade of finishes and wonderful sponsors with prizes (randomly awarded) to participants.
play will kick-off on February 13. The prompts will run February through March with linkups of finishes through April.
We'll explore all kinds of improv prompts in play. Put text in your quilt or don't. Make wonky log cabins or don't. (Get the idea?)
A parade of play finishes will be in early May.
We've two wonderful sponsors for the play QAL and prizes (randomly awarded) for those who play along -
American Made Brand
