About the Event
Have you ever wondered how to create an Improv Quilt without a pattern? Where do you start? How do you know when it’s finished? Author and award-winning artist Cindy Grisdela will share her tips and tricks in this entertaining lecture about the process for working improvisationally from start to finish.
Cindy Grisdela, from Reston, VA, is an award-winning fiber artist with over 30 years' experience creating eye-catching quilts. She specializes in improv piecing and design and using color fearlessly in quilts.
Cindy has been teaching and lecturing in person since 2014 and online since April 2020. Her classes use improv techniques to engage student creativity and encourage making original quilts without patterns or templates. There’s no way to make a mistake!
She comes from a long line of women who have expressed themselves using a needle and thread, although curiously there weren’t any quilters in her family. Creating with various forms of fabric and thread has been a part of her life since childhood, and she is self-taught as a fiber artist, with lots of experimentation along the way.
Cindy is the author of Artful Improv and a new book, Adventures in Improv Quilts, published in September 2021.
