All About Angles Workshop with Ocean Waves Quilt Guild

I've really been enjoying connecting with guilds on Zoom. I recently joined the Ocean Waves Quilt Guild in Lewes, DE to share my Rules and Options of Planned Improv Piecing lecture and teach All About Angles. This workshop is one of my Planned Improv workshops where I present a technique and set of rules to follow, with lots of options for students to make the composition their own. From fabric choices to color placement, sizes and angles of cutting, and other unique twists, I love that everyone's finished projects look unique in the end. Here are the progress or finished photos I've received from students in that workshop.

It's hard to tell from the photos but these projects range from mini quilt to lap quilt, with a variety of sizes in between. One of the things I love about improv piecing is you can keep going until it's the size you want (or as long as you're still having fun). Students sometimes set a size parameter as part of their own initial rules, for example, planning for a placemat-sized finished quilt. The use of additional elements, borders, and strips of fabric really add to the variety of options with the All About Angles technique.

You can read about all my workshop and lecture offerings on my Teaching page. I'd love to visit your guild on Zoom.

    Sarah, I started following you in hopes I too could create interesting quilts. Unfortunately, this new quilter has suffered a retinal occlusion and quilting has become so so difficult to do. But I am still loving your posts and enjoying your creative designs.
    Also, I think today’s post includes a new photo of you. It is very flattering!

      Thank you for your message, Nancy. I'm sorry to hear about your vision problems, but I'm glad you are still able to enjoy looking at the quilts. And yes, I do have a new headshot. Thank you for noticing!

    Love your colors. The quilt behind you is interesting
    My husband said it looked like lots of nice sails. I saw the black first.
