Sherri Lynn Wood Improv Round Robin

What a fun day we had the last day of the Stitch Modern 0214 show, having an improv quilting workshop with Sherri Lynn Wood in the middle of the exhibition space.  Techniques were taught, but mostly this was about taking ourselves to places we would never go, working on each other’s quilts, collaborative quilting. We worked fast, and mostly silently, without rulers even.  Fears melted away, instinct took over.  One could not have replicated this experience alone in one’s own studio.  Don’t want to give it all away in case one of these comes to an area near you, so I’ll let the pictures do the talking.

As the day came to an end our improv quilts started getting a bit bigger, and one could find many a quilter laying the quilt they just got passed out on the floor and contemplating how to continue the quilting conversation.IMG_2264

And in the end, we went outside on a beautiful day and all looked at our work product. We could each see our hand in several quilts!  It was amazing how they all turned out. With all that spontaneity and miss-mash of fabrics, some interesting compositions emerged.  But no mistake about it, this was about process, and the experience of it all, though we all still did get a mini quilt top to take home with us…:)
