Included in the issue, Maritza Soto gives a brilliant webinar on Impov Quilting. There are as many ideas about improv and many of us struggle to know where to start to improv our way to a pleasing design.There are however some basic threads of commonality that run through these improv quilts. In this webinar, Maritza talks about her various approaches to working in a manner where the process is everything and the maker bends the rules to watch the final design unfold.
