No patterns here, but definitely a plan! Explore the freeing power of improvised piecing with Nicholas Ball in his first book, Inspiring Improv. Learn his step-by-step technique-based process to explore six fundamental piecing structures. Practice how to stitch fabric together in an improvisational manner to create blocks or sections before using them to sew unique quilts all your own. Improv piecing doesn't have to mean chaotic end results. Look to the eight original projects included to see how to create sophisticated quilts with structure focusing on repeating blocks or large-scale scrappy designs. Follow along as Nicholas walks you through his original inspiration and follow his plan through to finished pieces, as he discusses which combination of his core piecing methods he used, and how to achieve showstopping, exciting work. From simple strip piecing through to complex circles and rings, you will be eager to experiment with making slabs, gentle curves, insets, triangles and even 9-patch and Log Cabin stacks. In no time, you'll be using them as a stepping stone to sewing original full-sized improvisational designs.

“The modern quilt movement is at its best when it finds creative ways to make classic techniques fit in with modern tastes. Bruecher has done just that.” —Library Journal Fat QuarterlyMagazine cofounder Tacha Bruecher takes a fresh look at an old favorite—English paper-pieced hexagons—with current fabrics and settings for quilts, table toppers, and more. Modern and traditional designs are both featured, including rosettes, stars, and free form. Learn how to combine settings and how to creatively quilt hexagons. Projects are varied for any skill level or time commitment—make a few hexagons, make a few more, or make few hundred. Making the individual hexagons is perfect for modern quilters on the go; the process is a terrific stash buster (and stress buster) that takes your priceless handwork from repetitive to remarkable! “Tacha is an amazing quilter and crafter, and both her style and skill are presented beautifully in this book. Tacha is one of those talented crafters whose fabric choices and original patterns reflect the eye of a modern quilter, but who simultaneously pays homage to the history and traditions of quilting. The result is a beautiful book that is sure to become a classic!” —quiltdad.com “What makes Tacha’s book different and worth buying is that she has added a modern twist—with wonky piecing, white sashing, embroidery, raw-edge applique and a color palette and fabric choices that scream ‘modern.’” —Australian Homespun Magazine
