Improvising Tradition

18 Quilted Projects Using Strips, Slices, and Strata

Book - 144 Pages

Improvising Tradition pairs improvisationally pieced elements with more structured, and perhaps more familiar, quilt patterns to create projects that share a fresh, clean, and modern aesthetic.

Alexandra Ledgerwood introduces you to three basic improv piecing techniques: strip sets, piecing improvised strata, and slice and insert, then combines them with traditional quilting designs such as log
cabins, coin and bar quilts, and even Hawaiian quilts.

Projects in this book include:

  • Slash Pillow
  • Ribbons Placemats
  • Nesting Squares Quilt
  • Morse Code Quilt
  • Game Day Throw Quilt
  • and much more!

By using improvised elements within traditional patchwork quilt designs, Alexandra merges new and old quilting styles into projects that quilters of all skill levels will love. Eighteen original projects combine the beauty and familiarity of traditional techniques with the fresh, fun spirit of improvisation.
