I first met Nick whilst waiting to collect quilts at Festival of Quilts several years ago - it happened we were the only two waiting ..... we quickly realised we were in the wrong place!
What can I say - I love this book! I like the style it is written in - it is full of information but not dogmatic, which is the way I like to teach.
There are three parts: Planning, Practice and Progress. Each part is broken down into sections covering such topics as inspirations, tools, techniques, binding. The Progress part contains twelve projects where Nick has talked about inspiration, fabric and quilting for each project. As I turned the pages I would think "Oh this is my favourite" before seeing the next one and thinking "No, this IS my favourite".
The section on techniques is very informative and can be followed as is or as a jumping off point for you to head in a totally different direction.
There is some great information in this book and it will really encourage you to have a go at Improv Quilting. Sadly, due to an injury, I am not in my studio at all, otherwise I would have raced straight in there to get cutting and sewing.
To see other people's take on Inspiring Improv head over here. Nick recently ran an Inspiring Improv IG Tour and there's some lovely projects going on.
