We are excited to share with you that we are bringing improvisational patchwork quilter Sherri Lynn Wood to Boise for a two-day Bias Strip Piecing on the Curve workshop!
Sherri is an interdisciplinary artist based in Oakland, CA. Her 2015 publication The Improv Handbook for Modern Quilters: A Guide to Creating, Quilting & Living Courageously (Abrams) provides frameworks for creative exploration, along with practical instruction in stitching techniques and color theory. Sherri teaches and speaks about improvisational patchwork and flexible patterning at art and craft schools, guilds, and conferences nationally and abroad. She will also be the featured speaker at QuiltCon 2019. You can find Sherri on social media @sherrilynnwood or at http://www.sherrilynnwood.com.
About the workshop:
Get your bias-strip curve on and celebrate your mistakes! Learn the innovative ruler-free technique of bias-strip piecing on the curve, how to troubleshoot and flatten internal bubbles as they arise. Learn to create wedge-curves along with a variety of options for utilizing both techniques in fixed patterns or improvised compositions. This is an advanced technique that takes time to master, pushing you to the brink of beginner’s mind. Imagine the possibilities! All skill levels welcome.
