Teaching Prep

It's been quiet around the blog lately. There are several reasons for this, but mainly it is due to my prep for my class I'm teaching next month at Sew South.

My desk has frequently looked like this as I prepare samples of the various improv piecing techniques I'm planning to teach:

One problem I've discovered with improv piecing is that it's messy. I tend to just throw scraps everywhere as I create. It's been so fun to actually dissect my process of improv piecing to share distinct techniques I use when creating a project. I'm excited to share a few of my creations with you all after my classes.

If you aren't heading to Sew South next month, consider signing up for my class at the Small Town Quit Show this summer. I'll be teaching another improv piecing class in Midway, Utah on Saturday, June 28. I'm very excited for this chance to teach locally. I'd love to see you there! The cost for the class is only $40. There are many other fantastic classes available from amazing teachers running through the weekend show.


  1. That's just what I feared: that improv piecing is messy. I'd love to give it a try though, as my scrap bins are overflowing. It would be interesting to hear what tips you have after you dissected your technique! Tina

  2. Yay! Can't wait to take your class. It's going to be fabulous!

  3. Sounds like a fun few teaching months you have lined up :o)

  4. Looking forward to your class and meeting you at Sew South. 😀
