Have you ever wanted to learn about modern quilts? Elizabeth has a great online workshop "Mod Meets Improv" to teach you. She explains a little more about her workshop and this new way of quilting...

This is a great class if you ever wanted to know what "modern" quilts were about.

AND it also covers improvisational - i.e. free hand - cutting and piecing and makes good use of the type of lines you get from this approach.  

You can be straight if you like... but it's much more fun to be curvy!!

And in this class you can be curvy and relaxed too!!!  You learn how to design... but you don't need to be able to draw... if you can write your name, you're good to go!

I want you to have fun... but also to learn a lot without really having to put forth much effort, just relaxing into the flow of it.

And here is an example of some of her amazing work!
