It's all String Piecing, a type of Improv. If you know me or you've followed my blog at all, you know Improv is not my thing. I'm a skilled pattern engineer; I can figure out how to draft complex designs and work from a plan. I'm pretty particular about accurate cutting and piecing. String piecing and Improv are so not me. I signed up for the class because it will
push me to be less rigid encourage me to loosen up a bit and step out of my comfort zone.
The pattern calls for lots of strings in neutrals and purples. I don't have much purple in my stash but I have lots of greens, so I'm using green for my dominant color. I also don't keep strings, so I've been cutting a lot of strips in various widths. Over the past month or so I've been able to collect enough strips & strings for the class tomorrow.
Per the supply list for the class, I'll also need some larger pieces of greens and neutrals to cut some of the parts, so I'm packing a selection of those, too.
Full disclosure, I helped Kevin with some editing and graphics for his pattern, so I have a pretty good idea of what we'll be making in class.
I'm looking forward to the class - I think it'll be fun; I'll get to participate with other quilters who have different strengths; and Kevin is always a pleasure to hang out with. I'm sure I'll learn something, too! Now to get the rest of my stuff packed and ready to go...
