Improv Meets Paper Piecing


If you’re like me, when you saw this book cover, you thought, what??? How can I be both improv in paper pieced? So I was really excited to get a copy to review from the author, Amy Friend.


Amy kicks it off right with a really detailed chapter explaining. It’s good stuff. I feel like another title could’ve been Precision Improv! The book is very conversational in tone and an enjoyable read.


The quilts are stunning. I love how the low volume selections in this one really add depth. It’s the one I have my eye on making. The shapes have an improv vibe, but the repitition makes it unique. 


The directions are quite clear and concise. Even if you’re new to paper piecing, you’d find them easy to follow. There are lots of tips for efficiency and clear diagrams. 

I’m not a huge fan of paper piecing and improv is not my jam, but Amy sucked me in. There are lots of good projects in there, but it’s really just a cool process that makes the book stand out. 


Here’s an added bonus, Amy is giving away a copy of Electric Quilt. You can enter over on her site here
